Rocky mountain VASCULAR QUALITY INITIATIVE
The Rocky Mountain Vascular Quality Initiative (RMVQI) is a group of vascular specialists and their hospitals who participate in the Society for Vascular Surgery Patient Safety Organization (SVS PSO) Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI). Our membership encompasses a large geographic area including Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. We generally meet twice each year, once in a site rotating among the member institutions, and once in conjunction with the Rocky Mountain Vascular Society Meeting. Our goal is to improve outcomes for our patients by exploring and analyzing data generated from our own group, and also that shared from other groups across the country. Sources of both regional and national variation are discussed and reviewed.
If you perform vascular surgery or vascular interventions, and work in the Rocky Mountain West, we would be delighted to speak with you about joining the RMVQI.
