American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

SSR Users Update: June 2019

Dear SSR Participants,

Thank you for your continued interest and participation in the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Surgeon Specific Registry™ (SSR). Last weekend, the SSR released these two system updates:

  1. The advanced search function is now available on the default “Cases” page allowing you to differentiate cases and electronic Patient Reported Outcomes (ePro).

    To filter your case grid by form type:
    • Select the form type from the drop-down menu on the left
    • Click “Search”
    • Click “Save View” on the top right to save your preference
  2. The non-binary option was added to the patient’s sex field. This allows you to distinguish between patient’s sex between male, female, or non-binary.
    • This update has been added as several states have recently updated laws to include this option on driver’s licenses, birth certificates, and hospitals’ demographic records.

If you have questions or improvement suggestions, don’t hesitate to contact  the SSR program at either or 1-312-202-5408.

For SSR technical support, contact or 1-877-600-7237 (toll-free).

Best Regards,
Your SSR Team
