Components of the VQI

vqi-componentsThe Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI) consists of three components – a distributed network of regional quality groups that operate under the SVS Patient Safety Organization and utilize the M2S database for data entry and report generation. The SVS PSO oversees the data sharing partnerships and patient safety initiatives of participants and regional quality groups of the VQI.

  • Regional quality groups drive the success of the VQI as they provide local traction to change practice, improve outcomes, and reduce costs.
  • Under the protection of the SVS PSO, clinicians and health care organizations can collect, aggregate, and analyze data to improve quality and reduce risks
  • M2S’s cloud-based system allows for efficient data-entry with real-time reporting
