VQI@VAM, the Vascular Quality Initiative’s annual meeting held in conjunction with the Vascular Annual Meeting, will also take a digital format in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic
VQI—which seeks to improve the quality, safety, effectiveness and cost of vascular healthcare, collects, analyzes and shares data across 14 registries—will hold two one-hour sessions from noon to 2 p.m. CDT on Tuesdays, from June 23 through July 28.
“While we cannot replicate the live experience of the VQI Annual Meeting, we will still endeavor to provide education to help you gain a better understanding of the VQI registries in an effort to aid in the data abstraction process,” said VQI medical director Jens Eldrup-Jorgensen, MD.
“We will also highlight the great accomplishments of those using VQI data for quality improvement efforts and scholarly endeavors.”
Jorgensen encourages VQI members to attend the live meetings, but the events will also be recorded to permit members to view them at their own convenience.
The VQI registries contain demographic, clinical, procedural and outcomes data from more than 700,000 vascular procedures performed nationwide and in Canada.
