    Agenda to be announced

At VCSQI, our quarterly meetings are pivotal moments where we come together to delve into the latest data, highlight best practices, and introduce innovative initiatives aimed at elevating the overall quality, cost-effectiveness, outcomes, and value of the care we provide to our patients. Our approach is holistic, encompassing not only the discussions but also the nourishment we provide.

Our Approach:

Our meetings go beyond routine gatherings; they are dynamic platforms for learning and transformation. We are committed to fostering a culture of excellence that touches every aspect of our interactions, including our dietary choices. This is why we thoughtfully tailor our menu items during in-person meetings to incorporate foods that promote heart health.


The Rationale:

  1. Data-Driven Decision-Making: We believe in the power of data to guide our actions. Our meetings offer an ideal setting to evaluate the latest data on patient outcomes, trends, and healthcare innovations. It's here that we can assess our progress and chart the course forward.

  2. Showcasing Best Practices: Our commitment to delivering exceptional care means sharing and highlighting best practices. By offering heart-healthy menu options, we demonstrate our dedication to the best practices in healthcare, including preventative measures like heart-healthy diets.

  3. Innovating for Quality and Value: Innovation is at the core of our mission. We use our meetings to introduce new initiatives that enhance the quality of care, reduce costs, and improve patient outcomes. These initiatives may encompass novel approaches to nutrition and dietary support.

  4. Strengthening Cost-Efficiency: As stewards of healthcare resources, we understand the importance of cost-effective care. By encouraging heart-healthy choices, we contribute to long-term cost savings through the prevention of heart-related conditions.

  5. Patient-Centered Care: Our approach revolves around patient-centered care. We know that diet plays a pivotal role in patient well-being. Discussing heart-healthy nutrition is an essential part of our mission to improve patient outcomes and overall health.

  6. Networking with Purpose: Our meetings serve as networking hubs for collaboration and partnership. Sharing heart-healthy meals encourages connections that lead to shared best practices, innovative ideas, and better value for our patients.

Incorporating heart-healthy, plant-forward foods and beverages into our meetings isn't just a culinary choice, it's a manifestation of our passion for excellence. We walk the walk when it comes to caring for the heart and our meetings are a symbol of this. We also strive for our in-person events to be completely free from single-use packaging. We serve our meals and beverages in ceramic cups, mugs, silverware and dishes.    

Our quarterly meetings reflect our dedication to data-driven excellence, best practices, and innovative initiatives that enhance the quality, cost, outcomes, and value of the care we deliver. 


Together, we are not only advancing the science of healthcare but also living it, one meal at a time.
