On average, hospitals that participate in ACS NSQIP have found that the program has helped them to prevent 250-500 complications and save 12 to 36 lives each year. ACS NSQIP estimates that if 4,500 hospitals across the nation used the progream, the potential savings would be $13 billion to $26 billion annually.
