Importance of Regional Meetings

Regional meetings are a cornerstone of the development of best practice within the VQI. The meetings are held twice a year in each of the 18 regions and the meetings are free to attend. Also, some regional meetings are open to non-members either from an existing VQI center or a prospective center interested in learning more.

We encourage all members to attend these meetings to learn how other colleagues are addressing areas of concern for providers including cost reduction, length of stay and quality of care.

Typically, the meetings include:
• Review of de-identified regional dashboards and discussion of best practice
• Presentation and discussion of region-specific data analyses of outcomes and one-year follow-up data
• Presentation and discussion of quality improvement projects at the center and/or regional level
• National updates of registry changes and key metrics

The schedule for Spring and Fall Meetings and minutes of past meetings are available on each region’s web pages.
