riskcalculator.facs.org What is the need for risk calculator? Informed consent –Thorough understanding of potential complications with surgery Shared decision making process –Type of operation –Or if surgery should be performed at all
riskcalculator.facs.org What is the need for risk calculator? Information traditionally based on –Surgeon experience –Literature Single institution studies Clinical trials And not specific to individual patient characteristics
Development of the Risk Calculator ACS NSQIP Data ( ) –30-day outcomes –Risk-adjusted using patient demographics, comorbidities and laboratory values –Collected by trained and audited surgical clinical reviewers (SCRs) –Standardized data definitions –Captures complications that occur after discharge or at another hospital –Superior to administrative data Lawson et al., Annals of Surgery, December 2012
riskcalculator.facs.org Development of the Risk Calculator 1,414,006 patients (393 hospitals) All surgical subspecialties (1,557 CPT codes) 21 pre-operative factors 10 outcomes Similar performance to previous, procedure-specific risk calculators for ACS NSQIP Includes new Surgeon Adjustment Score (SAS)
Surgeon Adjustment Score Surgeons can adjust estimate using clinical judgment Risk factors not captured by the Risk Calculator 2ONE standard deviation above CPT mean 3 TWO standard deviations above CPT mean
