Data Analysis & Research
SVS VQI physicians may request de-identified datasets from each SVS VQI registry for analysis. The SVS PSO Arterial Research Advisory Council (RAC) reviews and evaluates requests for datasets by investigators, who provide the RAC with a description of their proposed project.
Proposals are evaluated by the Arterial Research Advisory Council every other, and the Venous Research Advisor Council in the other months.
If investigators receive approval for their projects, the investigators then use the dataset(s) to support presentations and publications, based on SVS VQI data. See Approved Projects here.
Regional datasets should be requested by email from Melissa Latus, SVS PSO, and reviewed by the regional RAC Chair or Committee.
Guidelines and restrictions on use
- In order to receive a SVS VQI dataset, your center must already have a subscription to that SVS VQI registry.
- Please review the SVS PSO Data Use Agreement for restrictions and conditions on use.
- Please see the Product Identification Policy, which may affect your dataset request as there are stringent restrictions on the use of product data in VQI protocols.
- Medicare-match datasets are available for some datasets on a limited basis – please read the overview and dataset details here before you request these datasets to ensure that the data will benefit your study. The Medicare-match data are provided under a separate Data Use Agreement through Weill Cornell and there is a 3 – 6 month further lead time, once the project is approved.
For any questions related to the use of SVS VQI datasets, please contact Melissa Latus at email@example.com.
SVS VQI Publications
There have been over 600 published articles using SVS VQI data.
Rac Approved Project search
This RAC Approved Search function is designed to assist investigators before submitting new dataset requests to the National Research Advisory Committee (RAC). In particular, the Search results will provide past Project ID, Submission Period, Date Range, Project Title, PI and Research Question.
SVS VQI Medicare Matched Blinded Datasets
Medicare-match datasets are available for some datasets on a limited basis – please read the overview and dataset details here before you request these datasets to ensure that the data will benefit your study. The Medicare-match data are provided under a separate Data Use Agreement through Weill Cornell and there is a 3 – 6 month further lead time, once the project is approved.
SVS VQI Vision
The SVS VQI Vascular Implant Surveillance and Interventional Outcomes Network (VISION) is a partnership between the SVS VQI and MDEpiNet that directly supports the mission of the SVS VQI to improve the quality, safety, effectiveness and cost of vascular healthcare by collecting and exchanging information.
SVs pso data analysis guidelines
In order to ensure protection of de-identified datasets and fair access for members, investigators should familiarize themselves with the SVS PSO guidelines and policies on use, listed below.
SVs VQi Risk Calculators
The Vascular Study Group of New England developed an algorithm to predict the likelihood of post-operative myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, or arrhythmia requiring treatment.
