Surgical Outcomes and Quality Improvement Center

The Northwestern Surgical Outcomes and Quality Improvement Center is a collaborative health services, outcomes, patient safety, and quality improvement research enterprise between the Department of Surgery, the Northwestern Center for Healthcare Studies, the Department of Medical Social Sciences, Northwestern Memorial Hospital (NMH), the Northwestern Institute for Comparative Effectiveness Research in Oncology (NICER Onc), and others. Our research focuses on examining the quality of care delivered across the United States and subsequently developing strategies to improve healthcare quality.  Our research spans all the surgical specialties, but we have a particular focus on general surgery and surgical oncology.  Moreover, we work with NMH on numerous practical quality improvement initiatives, including American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) operations.
