The success of the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program® (ACS NSQIP®) in providing hospitals with high-quality surgical outcomes data and methods to improve care has led to efforts to extend this robust quality improvement program to a larger number of hospitals and surgical specialties. The ACS has collaborated with the American Pediatric Surgical Association (APSA) to develop a pediatric version of ACS NSQIP.
