Join us at our next SCOAP and Spine COAP Forum to be held in February, 2022!

The Forum will be followed by our Annual Meeting in early June and another Forum in the Fall of 2022.

Join us as we have further discussions regarding current quality improvement and research activities and other focused work within the learning collaboratives, as well as discussions around standardization and best practice. Other topics informed by the forums earlier this year are also being added, with the current agenda available coming soon.

A Zoom webinar link will be sent out to all registered participants a few days prior to the virtual event.

Registration will be available in early January.

Should you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us directly by phone or email at any time.


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.
