ACQUIRE is the AUGS Community for Quality Improvement, a national urogynecology-focused quality improvement platform open to all physicians designed to provide access to real-world evidence to a community of practitioners working to improve patient care for our patient population.
Below are some common questions you may have as a first-time ACQUIRE user.
Who can use ACQUIRE?
ACQUIRE is designed for surgeons and their office managers or staff to use. At this time, ACQUIRE does not support APPs including NPs and PTs. If you are in an academic setting but would like to use ACQUIRE for benchmarking purposes, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
How much does ACQUIRE cost?
ACQUIRE is free to all AUGS members! Contact email@example.com to join the registry as a non-member.
What kind of data do I enter into ACQUIRE? How long does data entry take?
Data entry is designed to be quick and easy; each patient should take only three to five minutes to complete. Questions include basic demographic data, diagnosis and pre-operative screening, a few questions about the surgery itself, and a few questions about post-operative complications.
