The ASC Quality Collaboration is dedicated to advancing high quality, patient-centered care in ambulatory surgery centers.

The ASC Quality Collaboration (ASC QC) was formed in 2006, bringing together leaders from both the ambulatory surgery center (ASC) industry and organizations with a focus on healthcare quality and safety. Today, our efforts are focused in the following areas:

Measure Development
Working together, participants in the ASC QC develop standardized quality measures appropriate to ASCs. Both a brief summary and a detailed guide to the measures are available.

Public Reporting of Quality Data
The ASC QC strongly supports public reporting of quality data. Our commitment to public reporting is reflected in our online publication of a free quarterly report of ASC quality data, made possible entirely through the voluntary efforts of our participants.

Advancing ASC Quality
To support the ASC industry's focus on high quality care, the ASC Quality Collaboration is assembling ASC Tools for Infection Prevention (ASC TIPs), that can be used to supplement current infection prevention practices.
