VVSG Research Advisory Council
VQI physicians in the VVSG may request de-identified datasets from each registry for analysis. The VVSG Research Advisory Council (RAC) reviews and evaluates requests for datasets by investigators, who provide the RAC with a description of their proposed project.
Please see the VVSG RAC request form for datasets: VVSG RAC Proposal Form and Waiver
Regional datasets should be requested by email from Nancy Heatley, SVS PSO, and reviewed by Dr. Albeir Mousa and Dr. Samantha Minc from the VVSG RAC.
Guidelines and restrictions on use:
- In order to receive a VQI dataset, your center must already have a subscription to that VQI registry
- Please review the SVS PSO Data Use Agreement for restrictions and conditions on use.
- Please see the Device Identification Policy, which may affect your dataset request as there are stringent restrictions on the use of device data in VQI protocols.
National RAC requests must be submitted through an online application: http://abstracts123.com/svs1/meetinglogin
For any questions related to the use of VQI datasets, please contact Nancy Heatley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
