The Illinois Surgical Quality Improvement Collaborative (ISQIC) is a recently initiated collaborative partnership of nearly 50 Illinois hospitals,
the Illinois and Metropolitan Chicago Chapters of the American College of Surgeons, the American College of Surgeons
National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP), the Surgical Outcomes and Quality Improvement Center (SOQIC),
and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois.
ISQIC is now accepting applications from small-rural hospitals. Please see the Small-Rural Hospital Tab for further details.

Our mission is to work together to improve the quality of surgical care in Illinois. Hospitals will be provided with detailed
data regarding their performance compared to other Illinois hospitals, along with the tools to enact meaningful improvements
when they identify problem areas. Mentors, formal quality and process improvement training, and process improvement
consultants will be available to the hospitals as they work to implement solutions. Lessons learned at one hospital
will be shared with all participating hospitals, so we can all learn from each other with a common goal of making care
better and safer for the surgical patient in Illinois.
