Surgical Care Improvement Project
Hospitals can improve surgical care and reduce the risk of wound infection after surgery by providing the right medicines at the right time on the day of surgery.
The Appropriate Care Measure (ACM) is a patient-centered composite score that captures whether or not a patient received all of the recommended treatments they were eligible to receive, based on their specific condition.
A quality measure is medical information from patient records converted into a rate or percentage that shows how well hospitals care for their patients. You can use this quality information to help you compare hospitals.
