AHSQC ORACLE

Outcomes Reporting App for CLinician and Patient Engagement

The AHSQC ORACLE uses preoperative and intraoperative information to estimate important 30-day and 1-year outcomes following elective ventral hernia repair using mesh. Postoperative results are estimated based on outcomes from data collected by the AHSQC. If you are a patient, you can use this tool together with a physician to estimate outcomes after ventral hernia repair with mesh.

Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative

The Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative (AHSQC) aims to improve the value in hernia care delivered to patients. Formed in 2013 by hernia surgeons in private practice and academic settings, the AHSQC utilizes concepts of continuous quality improvement to improve outcomes and optimize costs. This is accomplished through patient-centered data collection, ongoing performance feedback to clinicians, and improvement based on analysis of collected data and collaborative learning. The AHSQC fulfills the Americas Hernia Society mission of providing the right operation for the right patient and the right time.
