Assessment of quality of care is an essential part of surgical practice and is particularly important in a quickly evolving field such as hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery. Evaluation tools are necessary to examine the performance of individual surgeons and programs but are even more important in the valuation of new tools and practice paradigms. In this issue of JAMA Surgery, Görgec and colleagues1 provide a validated tool for HPB surgery, derived from a study involving 8188 patients undergoing surgical procedures by 116 surgeons in 14 centers and 10 countries.
