STS Public Reporting

Delayed Public Reporting

Posted 5/29/2020

Updates regarding STS Public Reporting Online initiatives for 2020:

  • ACSD, CHSD, and GTSD data refreshes will not take place in summer 2020. The next data updates will take place in January 2021.
  • STS will use this time to review and enhance the public reporting website and provide overall formatting updates, including CHSD public reporting modifications as announced in November 2019 by STS leadership

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: Adult Cardiac Surgery Database, General Thoracic Surgery Database, and Congenital Heart Surgery Database. At this time, public reporting is not available for the Intermacs Database.
