Non-Endorsement of Products: None Accredited status does not imply endorsement by Vanderbilt Medical Center, TNA or ANCC of any products that might be displayed in conjunction with this program. Off-label Product Use: N/A Accreditation Statement

Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Department of Nursing Education and Professional Development is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Tennessee Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Centers Commission on Accreditation. 1.0 Contact Hour National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Initially developed by the VA to risk-adjust outcomes in response to public concerns American College of Surgeons expanded the program to the private sector in 2004 Currently 408 hospitals enrolled Community / Private / Academic Half have fewer than 500 beds; program is expanding options to include smaller facilities ACS NSQIP Validated, clinically-based data collection Collects and analyzes clinical outcomes data

Measures quality of systems of care Quantifies 30-day risk-adjusted surgical outcomes, including morbidities and mortality Blinded comparison with national performance Currently working with CMS to develop outcomes measures for surgical procedures We Give NSQIP . . . 40 cases every 8 days (minimum 1680 / year) Random sampling General and Vascular Surgery Targeted procedure selection: 100% capture Colectomy Proctectomy Ventral Hernia Repair Inpatient and outpatient procedures Selected by service and CPT code Age > 17 Trauma / Transplant excluded during that admission Data Collection Manual chart review and abstraction Strict definition of abstracted elements 150 variables Demographics, preoperative factors and labs

Unplanned Intubation, On vent > 48 hours Cardiac Occurrences: MI, cardiac arrest Renal Failure Stroke Peripheral nerve injury Abstraction Requirements All patients are followed for 30 days after surgery Surveillance definitions are not the same as clinical definitions The abstractors clinical judgment is valuable, but not always assignable All elements of the definitions must be met for preop risk and postop occurrence Do the findings meet the purpose of the definition? Do they meet the letter of the definition? A Note about Clinical Abstraction Elements may be consistently findable. . . Or not . . . SIRS, Sepsis, Septic Shock Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome: presence of two or more of the following:

Temp >38 C or < 36 C HR > 90 bpm RR >20 /min or PaCO2 <32 mmHg WBC >12,000 , <4000, >10% bands Anion gap acidosis Sepsis Two of the above AND purulence or positive culture Septic Shock All the above AND evidence of organ dysfunction SIRS? Sepsis? Septic Shock? 72 year old male presents to the ED in distress with severe chest / epigastric / flank pain VS T 36.4 BP 118/74 HR 110 RR 24 PMH Coronary artery disease, insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, chronic pyelonephritis Loses consciousness BP 80/40 HR 116 Taken to CT scan Septic Shock? Shock? Yes

Septic? NO 30 Day Follow Up Many patients are seen in clinic at 30+ days Minor operations (appendectomy, hernia repair) may not be seen after two weeks. If no documentation in StarPanel, patients are contacted via telephone. No less than three attempts are made. Vanderbilts fully integrated medical record improves follow-up rates on pateints with and without postoperative occurrences. NSQIP Gives Us . . . Risk-adjusted surgical morbidity and mortality Semiannual Observed /Expected Ratio reports Interim reports: ongoing monitoring, comparison with internal and external peer groups Internal data analysis: access to institutional data for report development, integration with other data sets Semiannual Report Reports 12 months of data, with risk adjusted

NHSN SSI surveillance based on ICD-9, otherwise very little difference HAI surveillance primarily inpatient Device associated infections initially monitored in the critical care setting Currently monitoring CLABSI in general care; CAUTI soon Administrative data (UHC) Based on provider documentation, coding datas primary purpose initally was reimbursement. Only the index hospitalization is captured. NSQIP Like NHSN, abstraction is from clinical documentation, based on strict definitions Follows all patients for 30 daysinpatient, outpatient, discharged No device associated infection designation NSQIP Participants 400 + Hospitals About half are academic UHC 369 hospitals

Learn from high performers Develop best-practice recommendations Identify system variables influencing clinical performance Non-competitive environment for shared learning TSQC Mission and Vision Mission To improve the care of the surgical patient by supporting an open discussion and transfer of information through a collaborative team effort. Vision To identify best surgical practices, examine how the surgical team obtains best outcomes and teach other surgical teams how to improve outcomes.

On Ventilator > 48 hours Collaborative-wide improvement Superficial Incisional SSI Collaborative-wide improvement Thirteen procedure groups improved while hernia repair showed significant improvement. Seven sites improved; one significantly Wound Disruption Collaborative-wide improvement.

Eight sites improved; two significantly. Financial Model Shows Positive Results TSQC Opportunities Surgical Site Infections As the First Focus Colorectal surgery bundle Evaluation and implementation in 10 hospitals Rationale: High Volume occurrence in TSQC data 9 of 10 SCNRs identified SSI as opportunity Aligns with hospital current focus on SSI via CMS SCIP public reporting Business case Length of Stay and Costs significant TSQC Member Hospitals NSQIP Hospitals TSQC Member Hospitals NSQIP Hospitals Future NSQIP hospitals?

NSQIP and the Nation The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is considering five measures from ACS NSQIP for national implementation NSQIP based programs Bariatric Surgery Center Network NSQIP-Pediatric Trauma Quality Improvement Program ACS Goal: 1000 member hospitals by 2012 NSQIP Innovations 2011 Additional Options Small and Rural: hospitals with < 1680 cases / year Essentials: smaller data set Procedure Targeted: 100% of specific cases Classic: allows additional variables for research Florida Surgical Care Initiative 2012 Updates Procedure targeted variables Special thanks to Sherree Levering Oscar Guillamondegui
