The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), a not-for-profit accrediting organization, announces its collaboration with Nebula Data Intel, LLC (NDI), a new business providing specialty-specific intelligent medical data generated by participating outpatient surgical centers. The broad range of information allows benchmarking and tracking of trends on surgical outcomes, supply usage, and patient satisfaction.

Any outpatient surgical center accredited by a recognized accreditation organization is invited to participate. Participation is voluntary and costs nothing. All data is de-identified and HIPAA compliant.

“Nebula Data Intel is a unique initiative designed to combine multiple data streams to identify trends and drive informed decision making – in ways previously unavailable. This medical intelligence can be utilized throughout the healthcare industry. It’s an exciting program that focuses on improving patient safety through data intelligence,” said Dr. David Watts, AAAASF’s Board of Directors President and CEO of Nebula Data Intel, LLC.
