Participation Awards

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 2023 Participation Awards criteria:

  • Domain 1 – LTFU – 40% weighted
  • Domain 2 – Regional Meeting Attendance – 30% weighted
  • Domain 3 – QI Project – 25% weighted
  • Domain 4 – Registry Subscriptions – 5% weighted

The final score is calculated as follows:
Total points = 4 x LTFU score + 3 x Attendance score + 2.5 x QI score + 0.5 x registry score
