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.
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.
Data analysis guidelines for use
