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

SSR Users Updates: August 18, 2017

Dear SSR Participants,

The SSR release on August 12 incorporated 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 the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (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
  • Improvements to the display of CPT Codes® to show selected modifiers for primary codes

Further details on these items and other new features of the SSR can be found in the most recent release guide under “Notifications” in the platform. 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 can still view your historical SSR data in the previous platform until the full data migration process is complete. 

The SSR team is evaluating items to include in the next SSR release, which will take place in mid-September.  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
