Vascular Quality Initiative

Improving Vascular Care Through the VQI

The Vascular Quality Initiative® improves the quality, safety, effectiveness and cost of vascular health care by collecting, analyzing and sharing data on pre-operative risk factors, intra-procedural variables, post-procedural outcomes, and one-year follow-up data.

The VQI consists of a distributed network of regional quality groups that function under a SVS AHRQ-listed Patient Safety Organization using the M2S PATHWAYS cloud‑based data collection and reporting system.
