The SCW team is working hard to release another round of performance reports for breast cancer surgery and enhanced recovery protocols for colorectal surgery. Both of these reports will be for procedures that occurred during the first three (3) quarters of 2021 (January – September). Be on the lookout for reports to be released in the coming weeks.

  • Breast surgery reports will highlight 60-day re-excision rates, mastectomy rates, the number of index lumpectomy and mastectomy procedures, and the number of repeat procedures.
  • Colorectal surgery reports will display postop length of stay, clinical factors associated with 30-day readmission encounters, patient sociodemographics, and clinical characteristics
