Hospital outpatient department volume for selected outpatient surgical procedures

This page shows the total number of certain outpatient procedures performed within the outpatient department (e.g., outpatient surgery, cath lab, endoscopy) from all-payer data. This excludes procedures performed within the emergency department (ED). Most hospital outpatient procedures (99%) fall into 1 of 9 categories: cardiovascular, eye, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, musculoskeletal, nervous system, respiratory, skin, or other.

Hospitals participating in the Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR) Program submit this data through a web-based tool.
