About Us

AQI was established by the American Society of Anesthesiologists in October 2008 to facilitate practice-based quality management through education and quality data feedback.

As the largest registry in the country, AQI's vision is "to be the primary source of information for quality improvement in the clinical practice of anesthesiology."

Through education and quality data feedback AQI improves the care of patients, speeds the response to critical incidents and reduces anesthesia-related morbidity and mortality.

AQI's mission is to "maintain these ongoing registries with case data as the primary resource for anesthesiologists looking to assess and improve patient care."

Today the AQI carries out this pursuit, helping hospitals and practices answer important questions about the care they deliver by gathering, analyzing, and providing the data that providers need.

AQI is listed as a Patient Safety Organization (PSO) by the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), is a member of the National Quality Forum (NQF) and Multicenter Perioperative Outcomes Group (MPOG) and is a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR).
