STS Public Reporting

Delayed Public Reporting Due to COVID-19

Posted 3/31/2020

STS remains vigilant in monitoring the coronavirus and its impact on organizational activities, upcoming events, and—most important—our members and database participants. Updates regarding STS Public Reporting Online initiatives for 2020 are provided below.

  • ACSD and GTSD data refreshes will not take place in summer 2020. The next data updates will take place in January 2021.
  • 2020 updates to the CHSD public reporting pages will proceed as announced in November 2019 by STS leadership. The exact timeline is to be determined.

As a national leader in health care transparency and accountability, The Society of Thoracic Surgeons believes that the public has a right to know the quality of surgical outcomes. 

To further this goal, the Society has established the STS Public Reporting initiative, which allows participants in the STS National Database to voluntarily report their surgical outcomes to the public on the STS website. 

Public reporting is available for the following STS National Database components: the Adult Cardiac Surgery Database, General Thoracic Surgery Database, and Congenital Heart Surgery Database.
