Medical groups create program to increase quality of emergency surgery care

The American College of Surgeons and the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma have created a verification program to help hospitals improve the quality of care in emergency surgeries. 

The Emergency General Surgery Verification Program aims to "provide hospitals with a framework to create a culture of patient safety and develop highly reliable care delivery," Cliffard Ko, MD, director of the ACS' division of research and optimal patient care, said in a Sept. 27 news release. 

A key component of program participation is getting hospitals to recognize the value of clinical data on emergency general surgeries and leverage it to drive quality improvement.
