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

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?
