AHSQC: Am Hernia Society Quality Collaborative
Attention to all hernia surgery patients:
Please note that the Americas Hernia Society (www.americasherniasociety.org) has taken on the initiative to improve the quality of hernia care to our patients, including reducing chronic pain. This is via the AHSQC (http://www.ahsqc.org). It is a multinational database that is focused on tracking outcomes specifically from hernia operations.
If your surgeon is a member of the AHS and is entering your hernia surgery data into the AHSQC, you should expect to receive periodic emails and/or phone calls to update on how you are doing. Please take the time to answer these questions and/or phone calls. It is very important to have your involvement in this quality collaborative.
If you seek a consultation for a hernia surgery, please make sure you ask your surgeon if he/she is an AHS member and also participates in the AHSQC. It is important to increase the collaboration from all surgeons, as it will only strengthen the quality collaborative and improve patient outcomes.
