For Hospitals/Staff

In this section, hospital staff can find various resources to consult for quality improvement activities at their hospitals, including toolkits, helpful videos explaining the rationale behind and what to look for when abstracting various SCOAP metrics, as well as view other SCOAP trend data.
 We listened to your suggestions for a series of short videos describing the rationale for the SCOAP metrics! Now available on our YouTube page, and linked from the menu bar above, are“Metrics Vignettes.”

Use them to help you understand why the SCOAP metrics matter and how to make them matter to your surgical teams and your administrators!


“As a result of a review of the SCOAP Data Reports by the SCOAP surgeon champion, all elective colon cases that return to the OR are reviewed by the surgeon in question and the surgeon champion. Additionally, the pathology reports for colorectal cancer have become more specific and comprehensive as a direct result of the SCOAP data and feedback to the pathologists.” — Nancy Kingshott, Skagit Valley Hospital
