The Anesthesia Quality Institute

Through the need for improvement in Anesthesia Quality Management, AQI was created in 2008 as a non-profit subsidiary of the ASA for the purpose of 1) organizing the quality management, patient safety, and comparative effectiveness efforts of the society, and 2) creating a national registry of anesthesia cases and outcomes. As AQI is currently the largest anesthesia registry in the country, using AQI allows the practice to improve the patient’s quality of care, lower anesthesia mortality rates, and lower anesthesia incidents.
