Highlights of VCSQI

  • Access to our clinical/financial registry: Information from Adult Cardiac Surgery, CathPCI and STEMI databases are matched with financial data from the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association (VHHA).  This clinical/financial registry serves as the backbone for our quality improvement and research work.

  • Angiogram reviews: 5% of elective PCI cases' cath. films are selected for blinded, external review to assess agreement between imaging and pathology.  Our aim is for this blinded peer review to improve quality and enhance the appropriateness of care.

  • Collaboration/networking: Members benefit from connections with their peers around the state, effectively eliminating decision making in silos and bolstering clinical teams.  Examples of our work have positively affected early extubation, atrial fibrillation, blood conservation, and 30-day readmission rates, which has led to tens of millions of dollars in associated cost savings.

  • Development of Best Practices: Via quarterly meetings and monthly conference calls, VCSQI members analyze our database, identify top performers, and develop consensus-based best practice protocols.
