In April, the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery’s NeuroVascular Quality Initiative (NVQI) and the NeuroPoint Alliance (NPA) Quality Outcomes Database Neurovascular (QOD-NV) registry announced a partnership that forms a single, unified registry. This collaboration, NVQI-QOD, doubles the size of the previous individual registries and provides greater opportunity for providers collecting and analyzing perioperative and follow-up data to improve patient care.
The NVQI-QOD will be governed by the SNIS Patient Safety Organization (SNIS PSO), which will take direction from a newly formed Governing Council comprised of representatives from both the NPA and SNIS.
NVQI-QOD is an externally hosted, web-based registry supported on the M2S® PATHWAYS® platform, providing stakeholders with the most secure and robust solution to the challenges associated with registries and data sharing. NVQI-QOD is designed to easily integrate into a variety of workflows and allows multiple users to access and enter data on a single form and spread the responsibilities of data entry to more than one individual.
“This registry will serve as the registry effort for vascular and endovascular neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists and intervention neurologists. Such a multi-disciplinary registry will allow all these specialties to track patient characteristics, processes of care and clinically meaningful outcomes to make procedures safer and more effective for all of our patients,” commented the past chair of the NPA, Robert Harbaugh, MD, FAANS.
Developed by physicians for physicians, NVQI-QOD captures 100% of procedures, including important demographic, procedure and post-op data to provide comprehensive outcome analysis and inform performance improvement. A significant advantage of the NVQI-QOD database is the inclusion of long-term outcomes to one year or longer.
