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

SSR Users Updates: August 11, 2017

Dear SSR Participants,

The next SSR release is currently scheduled for August 12 and is expected to include the following items:

  • Addition of the “flex form” to add additional variables to the case form
  • Ability to select procedure targeted variables to the case form
  • Measure reports for General Surgery measures for MIPS
  • “Save & Duplicate” functionality in the case form to add a duplicate case
  • “Save & New” functionality in the case form to add a new case
  • Improved display of CPT Codes® to show selected modifiers for primary codes

In order to accommodate these updates on August 12, the SSR platform will be down from Friday, August 11, 12:00 midnight (EDT) until Saturday, August 12, 12:00 midnight (EDT).

To avoid losing data, please save all work and log out of the system by 11:45 pm (EDT) on Friday, August 11.

Please look for a release guide in the Notifications section of the registry for more details on these items and where to find them in the registry.

As a reminder, data migration will be an iterative process, and you will be notified when your data becomes available in the new platform.  In the meantime, you may still view your historical SSR data in the previous platform until the full data migration process is complete.  We will provide additional updates on future releases regarding new variables, functionality, and data migration when these releases become available.

If you have questions, please reach out to us at ssr@facs.org or 312-202-5408.

Thank you,

Your SSR Team
