Local Risk-Adjusted Model
The Local Risk-Adjusted Model aims to supplement the Semi-Annual Reports (SARs) to provide more timely data for BC NSQIP hospitals. Hospitals enrolled in the American College of Surgeons NSQIP receive SARs every 6 months as well as cumulative non-identifiable, non-risk-adjusted data.
Using the same data that BC NSQIP hospitals submit to ACS NSQIP, Local Risk-Adjusted reports will be provided to participating BC NSQIP sites on a semi-annual basis, aiming for November and May of each calendar year. Each site will receive risk adjusted data on a quarterly basis from either BCPSQC or ACS.
Benefits of the Local Risk-Adjusted Model
- Receive risk-adjusted data on a quarterly basis from either ACS or BCPSQC
- Local Model reports will include data that is more recent than SARs
(data in SARs is 6 months old versus 3 months old for Local Model reports)
- Identify local predictors. Are BC patients different, and if so, why?
What is needed from the SCR?
- Raw data will be download for designated time periods and submitted securely
- SCR time investment is minimal
