Quality and Safety in ASCs

ASCs work independently and collaboratively with other health and safety experts to ensure their patients have a safe, high-quality experience.

ASC Research

Numerous studies demonstrate the safe, high-quality care ASCs provide.

ASC Quality Reporting

ASCs participate in two national quality reporting programs today. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administers one---the Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Reporting (ASCQR) Program---and the ASC Quality Collaboration (ASC QC) administers the other—the ASC QC Quality Report.

ASC Quality Collaboration

The ASC Quality Collaboration brings together leaders from both the ASC community and organizations with a focus on healthcare quality and safety. Today, it's efforts focus on measure development, public reporting of quality data, advancing ASC quality and advocacy.
