The Collaborative Endocrine Surgery Quality Improvement Program (CESQIP) aims to improve the value of care delivered to patients. Formed in 2012 by endocrine surgery leaders from the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons (AAES) with expertise in outcomes tracking, CESQIP utilizes concepts of continuous quality improvement to improve outcomes and optimize costs. This is accomplished through patient-centered data collection, ongoing performance feedback to clinicians, and improvement based on analysis of collected data and collaborative learning.
