The Day Surgery Data Project (DSDP) highlighted the best practices and main problems with regard to DS health information systems used by European countries. DSDP proposed standard lists of essential and ideal Day Surgery (DS) indicators. When shared at international and national levels, such sets represent a precondition for comparison of performance and learning across countries, regions and local care systems. DSDP elaborated an approach explicitly integrating a standardized DS information system with a continuous quality improvement strategy. Together, these have the potential to significantly enhance the performance of DS delivery.

This was a large project and you can find a series of 3 talks below about the project that were presented at the IAAS Congress in Budapest in 2013.
