Ambulatory surgical centers
Hospital Compare is publicly reporting quality information on ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs). There are two categories of data available:
- Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Reporting (ASCQR) Program. The ASCQR Program reports information about the quality of care provided in ASCs, and is implemented by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
- Outpatient and Ambulatory Surgery Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (OAS CAHPS) survey data. The OAS CAHPS Survey asks patients about important parts of their experience at hospital outpatient departments and ASCs. This data comes from a Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey and is not part of the ASCQR Program.
