Summary of "Multicenter Observational Study Examining the Implementation of Enhanced Recovery within the Virginia Surgical Quality Collaborative in Patients Undergoing Elective Colectomy."

The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) Virginia Surgical Quality Collaborative (VSQC) exists to improve surgical outcomes through multi-institutional collaboration. Enhanced Recovery (ER) protocols improve morbidity and reduce length of stay (LOS) following elective surgery. We hypothesized implementation of ER through VSQC would reduce postoperative complications and LOS in patients undergoing elective colectomy. Our objective was to evaluate whether standardization of care based on evidenced based practices in healthcare settings across multiple institutions improved outcomes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Controlled studies which are planned and carried out by several cooperating institutions to assess certain variables and outcomes in specific patient populations, for example, a multicenter study of congenital anomalies in children.

Work consisting of a controlled study executed by several cooperating institutions.

A work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).

A work that reports on the results of a research study to evaluate interventions or exposures on biomedical or health-related outcomes. The two main types of clinical studies are interventional studies (clinical trials) and observational studies. While most clinical studies concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans.

The study and implementation of techniques and methods for designing computer systems to perform functions normally associated with human intelligence, such as understanding language, learning, reasoning, problem solving, etc.
