Sign up for ASA Quality Reporting

While quality reporting can be challenging, it is vital for quality care. ASA has simplified the process as much as possible to help you understand the options, collect the data and submit everything required.  Webinars and other resources are available to assist you.

Note: ASA Quality Reporting requires you to complete both the National Anesthesia Clinical Outcomes Registry (NACOR) and ASA Quality Reporting Agreements.  Please be aware that if you are currently a NACOR participant, you are not automatically enrolled in ASA Quality Reporting. You must sign up for ASA Quality Reporting separately.
