William B. Inabnet, III, MD, FACSA live webinar entitled “CESQIP: A dynamic quality improvement initiative for monitoring outcomes in thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and neuroendocrine surgery,” was conducted by Dr. William B. Inabnet III, MD, FACS, and included a 10 minute question and answer period. Denis Dudzinski, VP of Sales, ArborMetrix, Inc., moderated the webinar.


The Collaborative Endocrine Surgery Quality Improvement Program (CESQIP) is a cloud-based QI initiative that allows surgeons, programs and institutions to monitor their outcomes in thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and pancreatic/neuroendocrine procedures.  Designed by endocrine surgeons to be inclusive and easy to use, CESQIP is accessible, accurate, and cost-effective.

CESQIP uses continuous quality improvement to view outcomes through patient-centered data collection, with ongoing performance feedback.  Based on collaborative learning, and providing real-time reporting, CESQIP provides flexible and protected data access, and  further enables the transition to shared accountability care/payment models. Patient safety is enhanced through CESQIP’s best practices, decision support, and care pathways. By providing defined, true long-term outcome analysis, CESQIP represents an innovative platform for multidisciplinary collaboration at the regional, national and international level. In this webinar, Dr. William B. Inabnet will demonstrate and discuss the benefits of participating in CESQIP.

Goals of CESQIP

  • To provide health care providers and patients real-time information for maximizing value in the delivery of endocrine surgery
  • To establish a culture of data/outcomes tracking
  • To promote collaboration
  • To fulfill the American Board of Surgery Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements
