ACS Quality Programs

Building on more than a century of experience improving surgical care, ACS Quality Programs are a definitive measure of quality you can look for as you seek care. We’re proud to partner with the ACS and participate in the following programs:

Children’s Surgery Verification (CSV)

The CSV program ensures that every verified hospital meets the needs of pediatric patients. This specialized care provides improved outcomes, improved safety protocols and a standardized quality of care across the many crucial facets of children’s surgery. CSV hospitals have a nationwide reputation for improving the quality and outcomes in children undergoing surgery.

NSQIP Pediatric

NSQIP Pediatric is the first and only international database measuring performance outcomes across multiple specialties of children’s surgery. The program helps hospitals provide efficient and equitable care and shortens a patient’s time in the hospital. NSQIP Pediatric allows hospitals to track their performance with the most accurate data available, compare themselves with other leading hospitals and achieve the highest quality of care for children undergoing surgical operations.

Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP)

TQIP ensures that a hospital has acquired the strongest surgical data to analyze and improve patient outcomes. TQIP complements the Trauma VRC program by providing centers with the information they need to make changes to care so they continually improve the outcomes of their patients. Together, these programs help patients cared for in an ACS-verified trauma center receive the best care possible, which is critical because trauma patients often have little choice in where they receive care. TQIP includes interactive data tools that provide multiple opportunities for centers to learn best practices in trauma from other centers and subject matter experts.
