Foundation Program Sites


Thank you for joining us at our Annual Meeting earlier this June! We look forward to our next Forum in late 2022.

We want future Forums and the Annual Meeting next year to reflect the needs and desires of our members and really do rely on input from both attendees and our speakers to shape the direction for each following year. We would sincerely appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete the online evaluation here:, and if you would like a CNE certificate, please be sure to include your name and nursing license number.  CME and CNE certificates will be sent to attendees by mid-July.  Please reach out if you have not received yours by 7/20.

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?
