quality improvement," said David C. Chang, PhD, MPH, MBA, senior author and Director of Outcomes Research in the Department of Surgery at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine. Other investigators on the project include Ralitza P. Parina, MPH, third year medical student at UCSD School of Medicine; Tazo S. Inui, MD, resident in general surgery at UCSD School of Medicine; and Mark A. Talamini, MD, FACS, former Chairman of Surgery at UCSD School of Medicine.

A model for outcomes-based quality improvement, ACS NSQIP collects clinical, risk-adjusted, 30-day outcomes data in a nationally benchmarked database. The program is currently used by approximately 500 hospitals across the U.S. An Annals of Surgery study determined that hospitals participating in ACS NSQIP prevented 250-500 complications, resulting in an average of 13-26 lives saved per hospital, per year*. At $11,000 for an average cost of a complication, the combined potential savings of 4,500 hospitals could add up to $13-26 billion each year, amounting to an estimated total savings of $260 billion over a period of 10 years.
