The CCSIP is a quality
improvement initiative and hospital outcomes reporting program
supported by the California Society of Thoracic Surgeons and
the University of California, Irvine. The CCSIP provides information
about Heart Hospitals and physicians actively performing cardiac surgery and interventions in California. Access to procedural outcomes requires a participation fee and registration.
Hospitals registering as CCSIP participants should register surgeons, cardiologists and/or administrative personnel separately using a valid email address for each individual and the SAME PASSWORD (such as "ucirvine1") for all registrants. Upon approval as CCSIP participants, individuals may then logon using their email address and this password which will allow access to the confidential areas of the site. Individuals may then also modify their personal data as necessary.
To pay the participation fee ($900 per hospital, $100 for an individual), please request an invoice, and W-9 form if necessary, from CASTS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
