Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP)

logo for Surgical Care Improvement ProjectInitiated in 2003 by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the SCIP partnership is coordinated through a Steering Committee of 10 national organizations (CDC, CMS, ACS, AHRQ, AHA, ASA, AORN, VA, IHI and JCAHO). Nearly 30 additional organizations contributed expertise to technical expert panels that developed the initial SCIP measurement set of 5 outcome measures and 16 process measures.

SCIP was introduced to hospital executives at the AHA Health Forum in July 2005, and hospital recruitment is carried forward and expanded by CMS Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs).

The SCIP website provides information on the historical and methodologic transitions from the SIP program to the SCIP program.

The list of 2006 measures are available [PDF] and are reproduced in the table below. The original Surgical Infection Prevention (SIP) measures are maintained in the SCIP Infection measures.
