4 quality reporting resources for ASCs

There are myriad resources ASCs can use to benchmark their performance against other centers and to submit their own quality data.

Here are four of them:

Ambulatory Surgery Center Association Clinical & Operational Benchmarking Survey

Developed by benchmarking experts with input from association members, the Clinical & Operational Benchmarking Survey includes data on outcomes, volume, complications, staffing and more. Participation in the survey is open to the entire ASC community for a subscription fee.

The Leapfrog Group's ASC survey

The Leapfrog Group's ASC survey opened at the beginning of April, and allows any ASC to provide quality information. Benchmarking reports will be available to participants beginning this fall.

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care's annual quality roadmap report

Each year, the association releases a report detailing areas of high and low compliance for accredited ASCs, Medicare deemed status ASCs, office-based surgery facilities and primary care settings. The report helps centers identify areas for safety improvement. Past reports are available for free download.

ASC Quality Collaboration report

The ASC Quality Collaboration releases a free quarterly report compiled from voluntarily reported data provided by ASCs across the U.S. Organizations such as the ASCA, as well as ASC management companies Regent Surgical Health, Surgical Care Affiliates and United Surgical Partners International contribute to the report.
