Regional Quality Groups

Regional Quality Groups are a key component of the VQI. It is the vision of the VQI and SVS PSO to have a distributed network of these groups collecting common core data sets to allow for anonymous pooling of information.

Through regional quality group meetings, participants share and analyze collected data to initiate quality improvement projects to reduce complications, readmissions, and length of stay. Quality improvements projects can translate directly to hospital cost reduction. With continued expansion of the VQI and regional quality groups, data will more rapidly accumulate and can be leveraged for benchmarking and quality improvement initiatives

Additional benefits in forming a regional quality group include:

  • Anonymous, benchmarked reports for comparison
  • Increasing power and ability to detect root causes of outcomes
  • Facilitating & initiating quality improvement projects
  • Improving long-term patient surveillance
