American Society of Anesthesiologists - Quality Reporting Tips

Quality Reporting Tips

To ensure you are successful, ASA Quality Reporting recommends you follow these best practices:

  • Choose a physician anesthesiologist or other quality champion to manage and oversee the activities.
  • Establish quality control processes with your vendor or in-house IT to ensure data are collected and formatted properly.
  • Check data files for proper formatting and content prior to submission.
  • Monitor TIN and NPI numbers for completeness and accuracy.
  • Join files from different vendors prior to submission to Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI). If it’s necessary to have separate files, the champion should confirm with the vendor that a uniformly named episode of care ID is located in each file.
  • Monitor ASA Quality Reporting regularly to identify potential gaps.
  • Ensure data are submitted by AQI deadlines.
  • Participate in ASA Quality Reporting Virtual Office Hours.
  • Read AQI listserve communications and follow actions.
  • Stay abreast of reporting activities and compliance.
  • View the Quality Reporting Roles and Responsibilities.
