Participation Awards

PARTICIPATION AWARDS PROGRAM

The Participation Awards program began in 2016 to encourage active participation in the registries program and recognize the importance of that participation.

Participating centers can earn up to three stars based on actions that lead to better patient care, including:

  • The completeness of long-term, follow-up reporting (LTFU) based on the percentage of patients for whom they have at least nine months of follow-up data*
  • Physician attendance at semi-annual meetings of a regional quality group
  • Initiation of quality improvement activities based on VQI data
  • The number of vascular registries in which the center participates

*Due to COVID-19, some temporary adjustments are being made regarding credit for LTFU
