Surgeon Video Review

MSQC Video Review Program for Laparoscopic Colectomy

MSQC Surgical Video Review allows surgeons to reflect on their own surgical techniques through self-evaluation and learning via anonymous peer feedback. Practicing surgeons can submit a de-identified laparoscopic colectomy surgical video for objective peer evaluation and feedback to assist in improving surgical technical skills and subsequently, reduce negative patient outcomes. The tool used for surgeon assessment has been validated for laparoscopic right colectomy in conjunction with the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS).

This is the beginning of important work in quality improvement for colectomy surgery to improve patient outcomes.
