    The mission of VQI is to improve the quality, safety, effectiveness and cost of vascular healthcare.

    The Vascular Quality Initiative® (VQI®) is a collaboration of the Society for Vascular Surgery Patient Safety Organization (SVS PSO), 18 regional quality improvement groups organized under the SVS PSO, and Medstreaming/M2S, its commercial technology partner.

    • Other partners include the American Venous Forum (AVF), the Society for Vascular Medicine (SVM), Vascular Access Society of America (VASA) and the Society of Vascular Ultrasound (SVU), along with an additional 16 endorsing societies .
    • The SVS PSO is an LLC of the Society for Vascular Surgery, with headquarters in Chicago. The SVS PSO governs all functions of VQI, including the specification of data elements captured in each registry, the types of standard reports made available to regional groups, member hospitals and physicians, and national quality improvement projects sponsored by VQI.
    • The SVS PSO is also supported by 170 physician volunteers who dedicate their time and effort in support of the VQI mission. These physicians provide governance, clinical support to all the registries and data analyses and ad-hoc support in areas such as industry partnerships and communications.
    • Each center and region have lead physicians and regional medical directors to provide guidance, identify best practices and develop regional initiatives.
    • The SVS PSO is funded by annual registry subscription fees from participating hospitals or physician groups, and additional contributions for VQI projects are provided by corporate supporters.

    On June 2, 2015 the CSVS released a list of “Five Things Physicians and Patients Should Question” in Vascular Surgery as part of the Choosing Wisely Canada campaign. The list identifies five targeted, evidence-based recommendations that can support physicians and patients in making wise choices about their care. Through the Choosing Wisely Canada campaign and the publication of this list, CSVS is helping physicians and patients engage in conversations about potentially unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures, and supporting physician efforts to help patients make smart and effective choices to ensure high-quality care. CSVS joined the campaign because its leadership recognizes that physicians have a professional, moral and ethical responsibility to take the lead in addressing these challenges.
