Enrollment in ACS NSQIP Pediatric is now open
The ACS NSQIP Pediatric (ACS NSQIP Peds) is the first multispecialty outcomes-based program to measure the quality of children's
surgical care. Similar to the Adult ACS NSQIP, ACS NSQIP Peds will enable participating hospitals to collect highly reliable
clinical data including 30 day outcomes.
The ACS NSQIP Peds has been designed to collect approximately 94 data points that are relevant to measuring surgical outcomes in children under
18 years of age. Preoperative, intraoperatve, and postoperative data will be collected on patients undergoing major surgical
procedures. Additional data points have been included for neonates up to 30 days old.
The ACS NSQIP is now accepting applications for ACS NSQIP Peds.
The ACS NSQIP Peds is available to freestanding general acute care children's hospitals,
children's hospitals within a larger hospital, specialty children's hospitals, and general acute care hospitals with a pediatric wing. Hospitals interested
in participating will be required to hire a full-time Surgical Clinical Reviewer (SCR), complete a participation agreement, and pay an annual participation fee.
