IMPORTANT INFORMATION

PACIFIC NORTHWEST VASCULAR STUDY GROUP

We are a group of hospitals and vascular specialists in Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Hawaii 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 Washington, Oregon, Alaska or Hawaii, we would be delighted to talk with you about joining the PNWVSG.
