Abstract

Summary: The American Society of Plastic Surgeons commissioned the Autologous Breast Reconstruction Performance Measure Development Work Group to identify and draft quality measures for the care of patients undergoing autologous breast reconstruction and other breast reconstruction surgery. Four outcome measures and one process measure were identified. Outcomes include patient satisfaction with information for all breast reconstruction, a subscale of the BREAST-Q, and the length of stay, operative time, and rate of blood transfusion for autologous blood transfusion. The process measure looks at coordination of care around managing the breast reconstruction patient's care, with the physician coordinating the ongoing care, be it an oncologist, radiologist, other specialist, or primary care physician. All measures in this report were approved by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Quality and Performance Measures Work Group and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Executive Committee. The Work Group recommends the use of these measures for quality initiatives, continuing medical education, maintenance of certification, American Society of Plastic Surgeons' Qualified Clinical Data Registry reporting, and national quality-reporting programs.
