Centers of Excellence in Hernia Surgery
The COEHS program is focused on improving the safety and quality of hernia patient care worldwide, and lowering the overall costs associated with successful treatment. Data from COEHS participants will be used to determine which treatment works best for which patient under what circumstances. This information enables clinicians, patients, payors and policymakers to make informed decisions that improve healthcare at the individual level and for the patient population as a whole. The COEHS program helps position providers of hernia surgery at the forefront of care and demonstrate the improved outcomes and cost savings that result from a quality initiative.
