We look forward to further discussions regarding current quality improvement and research activities and other focused work within the learning collaboratives, as well as in-depth discussions around appropriateness, best practice, and more. The agenda is now available; please REGISTER HERE to make sure you are able to take advantage of the continuing education opportunity.  A webinar link will be sent out to all registered participants a few days prior to the virtual event.


SCOAP is an engaged community of clinicians working to build a safer, higher quality, and more cost effective surgical care.

We promote data-driven quality improvement activities in hospitals across Washington. The central premise of SCOAP is that quality of care can best be enhanced through collaborative, not punitive, mechanisms.

SCOAP is a Washington State-approved Coordinated Quality Improvement Program (CQIP). This status provides exemption from disclosure of information and documents specifically created and collected for, and maintained by, an approved program.


Transparency is critical across the healthcare spectrum. It touches everything from how physicians practice medicine, to how information is shared with patients, to how hospitals gather and report outcomes.

Transparency provides clarity to physicians, promotes trust among patients and leads to long-term improvements in outcomes.

How does SCOAP use chart abstracted data to improve patient care?
