Surgical Site Infections

In August 2010, the Center for Transforming Healthcare launched its fourth project which aims to reduce surgical site infections in patients having colorectal surgery and colorectal procedures. This project was launched in collaboration with the American College of Surgeons. The ACS's National Surgical Quality Improvement Program surgical outcome data expertise is guiding the SSI project's data collection and analysis. NSQIP data on outcomes of surgery are highly regarded by physicians as clinically valid, using detailed medical information on severity of illness and comorbidity to produce exemplary data on risk-adjusted outcomes. Colorectal surgery and colorectal procedures are often associated with SSIs as reported by NSQIP hospitals.
