Quality Improvement Can Lead to a Reduction in Cost

The Quality Improvement projects and research in the SVS VQI have demonstrated impact, tracked at the center level, regionally or nationally.

 Value of Regional Quality Groups

Regional quality groups are the cornerstone of the Vascular Quality Initiative’s success. These groups provide a vehicle for collaboration between peers to identify and share best practices for improving patient care and reducing costs at the local level. Through regular meetings, participants analyze their regional data to identify variation in processes of care or outcomes that suggests opportunities for improvement.

At the regional meetings, risk-adjusted benchmarked reports of key quality measures are provided to participating centers and physicians, comparing their center to others in the region. They also receive risk-adjusted reports that compare their regional group’s performance to other regional groups of the VQI. These reports provide insight for regions and centers to launch quality initiatives that focus on practice changes to impact patient care and decrease costs.
