Join your Mid-America Vascular Study Group peers in the VQI

We are a group of hospitals and vascular specialists in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Kansas who have committed to collecting, sharing, and analyzing data related to vascular interventions and outcomes.

Our goal is to improve outcomes for our patients and to explore the factors that predict the best outcomes. We take advantage of the rapidly accumulating data that come from collaboration with other interested groups.

The Vascular Study Group of New England, and more recently other Regional Quality Groups, have shown us how much can be accomplished with such a regional collaboration.

If you perform vascular surgery or other vascular interventions and work in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Kansas we would be delighted to talk with you about joining the MAVSG.

We would be happy to hear from you by email at: Ashley.Vavra@nm.org
