Working with Industry

The VQI works closely with industry using real-world registry data to advance the understanding of devices and therapies, improve patient safety, and streamline development.

Retrospective and Prospective Projects: Manufacturers can use the VQI for retrospective or prospective projects to evaluate devices and therapies, working with the SVS PSO, FDA and M2S:

  • Take advantage of the existing network of over 400 VQI centers participating in VQI
  • Reduce costs by simplifying site contracting, avoiding IRB fees
  • Create dynamic content on the M2S PATHWAYS web-based platform
  • Supplement existing data with required elements to greatly speed project completion and meet regulatory requirements
  • Provided necessary comparative device data as opposed to prospectively collecting this data over an estimated three years
