About SCIP: The Surgical Care Improvement Project sets specific guidelines to help hospitals reduce the incidence of postoperative surgical site infections, perioperative cardiac events, deep vein thrombosis, and postoperative ventilator-associated pneumonia, all of which have been identified as major contributors to surgical complications.

As part of the Value-Based Purchasing Program (VBP) and other initiatives, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) uses SCIP guidelines, among others, to measure the quality of hospital care. SCIP compliance therefore impacts hospital reiumbursement opportunities as well as surgical outcomes.
