SURGICAL ASSIST DATA
Data and research coming soon.
Surgical Assist Data & Research
Our team of surgical assistants consists of certified surgical physician assistants, registered nurse first assistants, and certified surgical assistants who support the surgeon across a range of areas. Because we support more than 1,000 hospitals and nearly 400,000 procedures across our service lines each year, SpecialtyCare has the industry’s largest multi-institutional operative registry. Our SCOPE™ database enables us to conduct unparalleled clinical research. This allows our medical office to identify and disseminate emerging trends and best practices. We track and report first-case start delay, participation in surgical timeout, incision time, closure time, and the time the surgeon leaves the operating room. We are consistently improving the quality of our services to ensure patients are receiving the best care possible.
More information coming soon.
