About MPOG

Our mission is to promote safe and evidence-based perioperative care for all patients through collaboration, research, education, and quality improvement. 

Our story

We Are

Who We Are:

We are anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, nurses, surgeons, quality improvement experts, computer programmers, statisticians, researchers, and administrators brought together by a passion for healthcare improvement.

What We Do:

MPOG uses health data to analyze the interplay between patient characteristics, healthcare systems, surgical procedures, perioperative care, and postoperative outcomes. Our registry is built  through collaboration with participating hospitals by using automated processes to extract institutional data that is validated by clinicians before submission to the coordinating center at the University of Michigan. At the coordinating center, data is transformed for use in research, quality improvement, and education.  MPOG creates an environment of innovation and collaboration using priorities driven by its members through the MPOG Quality Committee, the Perioperative Clinical Research Committee, and the Executive Board. 

What We Have Accomplished:

Our dedicated team facilitates over 20 simultaneous prospective, retrospective, and enhanced observational trials at any given time and has developed and maintained a portfolio of over 90 quality improvement metrics. Over the last decade, we have built a perioperative patient registry of more than 28 million anesthetic cases integrated across greater than 85 hospitals representing the most comprehensive and detailed global perioperative anesthesiology registry.
