2017 VQI@VAM: Planning Underway and Registration Opens in March

Save the Date: VQI@VAM for 2017

Following last year’s successful inaugural VQI Annual Meeting, the SVS PSO is finalizing details for this year’s event with Registration opening in March:

Date:            Tuesday, May 30, 2017 (half day) through Wednesday, May 31st (full day)

Place:          San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA

We have added a half day of programming on Tuesday, May 30th, inclusive of concurrent session programming, in an effort to provide additional educational opportunities spanning the breadth of the VQI registries. This additional programming will be specifically designed for data managers. The half day program begins at noon on Tuesday May 30th and ends at 5:00pm with an Abstract Poster Reception, in response to overwhelming requests for additional time to network. The full day meeting on Wednesday May 31st for physicians and data managers is scheduled to begin at 8:00am through 5:00pm.

To support your attendance at VQI@VAM, we have developed a sample justification letter that you can use with your administrators. (Click here to download Sample Justification Letter)

The headquarters hotel is the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina Hotel.  The official housing website, complete with discounted room rates, will open in early March 2017.  Please do not call the hotel directly for reservations.  When housing opens in March, you will be able to link to hotel registration at VQI@VAM Registration.

We’re working on the Agenda for 2017 VQI@VAM and will be providing full details soon.

Feedback from last year’s attendees:

“I would not change anything. Overall the structure and content of the meeting was great. I took a lot from both the AM and PM sessions and look forward to taking (this info) back to my health system.”

“I wish this could almost be a two day event so that you could spend one day just on the registry/modules and the second for Analytics and Data.”

“I enjoyed the interactive group Q&A with discussion.”
