about the SVS VQI

SVS VQI’s 14 registries contain demographic, clinical, procedural and outcomes data from more than 1,000,000 vascular procedures performed in North America and Singapore. Each record includes information from the patient’s initial hospitalization and at one-year follow-up.

  • The wealth of data allows centers and providers to compare their performance to regional and national benchmarks.
  • Each center and provider receive biannual dashboards and regular performance reports, so they can use their data to support quality improvement initiatives.
  • Biannual regional meetings allow physicians, nurses, data managers, quality officers, and others to meet, share information and ideas, and learn from each other in a positive and supportive environment.

Where SVS VQI data are used to:

  • Significantly improve the delivery of vascular care at a local and national level, reducing complications and expenses.
  • Stratify risk, analyze outcomes, develop quality improvement, define best clinical practices, assess comparative effectiveness research and improve resource utilization.
  • Facilitate participation in clinical trials and other medical device evaluation efforts.
  • Collaborate with multiple organizations, including medical societies, governmental regulatory agencies, device manufacturers, and payers
  • Help provide clinically detailed data for device performance, post-market surveillance, and label expansion
  • Partner with vascular registries from Europe and Asia to form the International Consortium of Vascular Registries (ICVR) to bring a global perspective to improving vascular care and device evaluation.


Participating SVS VQI centers include academic medical centers, teaching hospitals, community hospitals, vein centers, office-based labs and individual physician’s practices.

The Canadian Vascular Quality Initiative (CVQI) is a voluntary, cooperative group of clinicians, hospital administrators, and research personnel organized to improve the care of patients with vascular disease. By collecting and exchanging information, the CVQI strives to continuously improve the quality, safety, effectiveness, and cost of vascular healthcare.
