Bariatric surgical center accreditation improves patient survival and postop complications
Date:9/3/2014

ww.facs.org/quality-programs/mbsaqip">Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), a combined surgical quality program of the ACS and the ASMBS.

"I suggest that patients considering a bariatric operation look for, and go to, an accredited bariatric center," Dr. Nguyen said. "The accrediting body already did the homework for the patient. The patient essentially needs to ask only one question [to learn the facility's capabilities]: Is this an MBSAQIP-accredited center?"

Another important finding of the study, according to Dr. Nguyen, is that the 2006 CMS requirement for facility accreditation did not decrease Medicare patients' access to this type of surgical care, as some opponents of the requirement suggested it might. In the first five years after the mandate for accreditation, the investigators found a 71 percent increase in the volume of bariatric operations performed.

Speculating on the many probable reasons for the observed increase, Dr. Nguyen said that greater availability of accredited facilities might have been a motivating factor: "Accreditation may have helped patients feel safe about having this operation."
