Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Reporting by State

$179 / year

The Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Reporting (ASCQR) Program seeks to make care safer and more efficient through quality reporting. ASCs eligible for this program may have their Medicare payments reduced if they do not report data for these measures. This dataset describes the State level healthcare results for Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Reporting Program measures.

Complexity

The Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Reporting (ASCQR) Program dataset reports quality measures for care provided in an ambulatory surgical center (ASC) setting. This dataset provides state-level healthcare results for ASCQR Program measures. It is a pay-for-reporting, quality data program for standardized measures. ACSs are healthcare facilities that perform surgeries and procedures outside the hospital setting. The ASCQR Program was started by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to promote higher quality, more efficient healthcare for Medicare beneficiaries through data reporting, quality improvement, and measure alignment with other clinical care settings. ASCs that participate in the program and meet program requirements are rewarded based on the quality of care that they provide to patients. The program operates by (1) awarding ASCs that meet program requirements with an annual payment, and (2) reducing the annual payment by two percent for ASCs that do not participate in the program, or fail to meet program requirements for the seven ASC measures.
