 Vascular Quality Initiative - VQI

The Vascular Quality Initiative® (VQI) of the Society for Vascular Surgery® (SVS) is designed to improve vascular health care. It provides an opportunity for individual providers, hospitals, and regional quality improvement groups to collect and analyze clinical data in an effort to improve patient care. VQI collects:

  • pre-operative risk factors,
  • intra-procedural variables,
  • post-procedural outcomes, 
  • one-year follow-up data

to assess quality of care and determine best practices in vascular health care under the auspices of the SVS Patient Safety Organization (SVS PSO). The SVS PSO provides oversight of data sharing arrangements, key outcome and quality measure analyses, and dissemination of information to participating providers.
