Participation Awards

2022 PARTICIPATION AWARDS PROGRAM

Participation Awards began in 2016 to encourage active participation in the registries program and recognize the importance of participation. Domains recommended by the Participation Committee were endorsed by the SVS PSO Governing Council to emphasize the importance of center participation in 4 key areas. Those key areas include Long Term Follow Up (LTFU), Regional Meeting Attendance, Quality Improvement (QI) project, and Registry Subscriptions.

The following is a list of the four domains for the 2022 Participation Awards criteria:

  • Domain 1 – LTFU – 40% weighted
  • Domain 2 – Regional Meeting Attendance – 30% weighted
  • Domain 3 – QI Project – 20% weighted
  • Domain 4 – Registry Subscriptions – 10% weighted

The final score is calculated as follows:
Total points = 4 x LTFU score + 3 x Attendance score + 2 x QI score + 1 x registry score

LTFU Re-Instated in the 2021 Participation Awards

During the height of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, the committee decided to temporarily remove LTFU as criteria for the 2020 Participation Awards. Effective immediately, the Participation Committee unanimously voted to re-instate LTFU criteria in the 2021 Participation Awards. 

 

The following is a list of the four domains for the 2021 Participation Awards criteria:

Domain 1 – LTFU – 40% weighted

Domain 2 – Regional Meeting attendance – 30% weighted

Domain 3 – QI Project – 20% weighted

Domain 4 – Registry subscriptions – 10% weighted

The final score is calculated as follows:

Total points = 4 x LTFU score + 3 x Attendance score + 2 x QI score + 1 x registry score

 

Scoring details will be provided in newsletters, upcoming webinars, the VQI Annual Meeting, and the Fall regional meetings.
