One million procedures

The SVS VQI has now collected over one million procedures in its database. The SVS VQI is a not for profit clinical registry dedicated to improving the care of vascular patients through a data-driven approach to healthcare. The “big data” the Initiative provides has led to scientific discovery that has dramatically impacted patient care, with changes in practice that have saved thousands of lives. This data collection milestone reflects the interest and engagement of SVS VQI centers and their commitment to elevate the delivery of vascular care.

focus on Quality improvement

The SVS PSO, together with Fivos, develops quality improvement (QI) tools to assist VQI members and other vascular specialists, quality improvement  staff and hospital administrators with their own vascular quality programs.  Some of these tools are available to VQI members only, but other materials will be available here.
