Hospitals can enroll in a free, 12-month program funded and guided by the AHRQ. Enrollment is open for the program that begins March 1. Informational webinars for hospitals interested in joining start Oct. 29 and run through Dec. 13.

Participating hospitals will receive evidence-based enhanced recovery pathways, input from experts in the field, implementation resources, access to the American College of Surgeons' data collection platform and benchmark reports.
