American College of Surgeons Announces Goal to Enlist 1,000 Hospitals to its National Surgical Quality Improvement Program
Date:7/18/2011

>Mark Chassin, MD, FACP, MPP, MPH, president, The Joint Commission. "I think the most important first step for hospitals to realize true quality improvement is for the entire leadership of the hospital – from nurses and surgeons, to executive management and in some cases, members of the board – to come together and make a commitment to higher levels of patient safety. Without this commitment from the top-down, we can't expect it to work."

"Mercy is a not-for-profit Catholic Hospital owned by the Sisters of Mercy with a mission to take care of everyone irrespective of their race or economic status," said Alejandra Perez-Tamayo, MD, FACS, chief of surgery, Mercy Hospital and Medical Center. "Because of this, we count our pennies very closely. Through the close and productive relationship between the administration of the hospital and its physician leaders, ACS NSQIP was identified as a surgical quality program worth investing in. Using ACS NSQIP, Mercy has been able to identify opportunities for improvement, reduce infection rates, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and develop multidisciplinary teams and programs that develop processes for better care."

"As a transplant surgeon, we are subject to the highest standards of excellence and outcomes," said Enrico Benedetti, MD, FACS, chief chair of surgery, University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago. "If these regulations and standards were applied to all other fields of medicine using a database and risk-adjusted data, patient outcomes would improve."

"At the University of Chicago, we have been inspired by national programs endorsed by the American College of Surgeons to create a new culture of surgical quality improvement in order to optimize care, improve efficiency and lower costs," said Jeffrey Matthews, MD, FACS, chief of surgery, University of Chicago Medical Center.
