Selected Databases for which JSCOR can Provide Support//

American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP)

The NSQIP contains a large amount of clinical data on a systematic sample of major surgical procedures performed on adult patients at participating hospitals around the U.S.  The NSQIP does not include trauma surgery or transplants.  The database contains demographic data, comorbidities, lab values, CPT codes of procedures performed, and 30-day complications, mortality, re-hospitalizations, and re-operations. JSCOR owns NSQIP data from 2006 through 2015. In addition, JSCOR has the Pediatric NSQIP, and Procedure Targeted files for Colectomy, Vascular Surgery, Pancreatectomy, Hepatectomy, Hysterectomy, and Gynecology Reconstruction. The Procedure Targeted files contain additional variables specific to those procedures and can be linked to the main NSQIP.

American College of Surgeons National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB)

The NTDB contains a large amount of clinical data on a convenience sample of trauma cases from over 900 trauma centers around the U.S. Registrars at participating centers collect data on all trauma cases for a four month period each year. The database contains demographic data, transport information, use of protective devices, vital signs, emergency department information, comorbidities, complications, and discharge status. Injuries are coded using both ICD-9/10 diagnosis codes and AIS codes.  ICD-9/10 procedure codes are also included. JSCOR owns NTDB data from 2002 through 2017.  Since there was a significant change in data collection procedures between 2006 and 2007, users generally analyze data from 2007 through 2017. (see for more details:
