Fairfax, Virginia (April 7, 2021) – The Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery (SNIS) and NeuroPoint Alliance (NPA) are pleased to welcome the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology (SVIN) to the NeuroVascular Quality Initiative-Quality Outcomes Database (NVQI-QOD). SVIN joins SNIS and NPA to expand the breadth and depth of the NVQI-QOD, the premier neurovascular registry focused on improving clinical care and outcomes for patients with stroke and intracranial cerebrovascular diseases.
NVQI-QOD is governed by the SNIS Patient Safety Organization (SNIS PSO), which takes direction from a Governing Council composed of representatives from all three organizations. NVQI-QOD is uniquely focused on neurovascular care providing real-time actionable data, comparable metrics and data on device effectiveness. Supported on the M2S® PATHWAYS™ platform, this web-based registry integrates into a variety of workflows, providing stakeholders with a secure and robust registry solution.
“We are very excited to collaborate with SNIS and NPA,” said SVIN President David S. Liebeskind, MD, FAHA, FAAN, FSVIN, FWSO. “Bringing together all three organizations is an incredible opportunity to impact patient care and work to solidify NVQI-QOD as the global neurovascular registry.”
“This addition of SVIN will facilitate the support and participation of nearly all neurointerventional providers for the NVQI-QOD registry which harbors the most advanced quality metrics and electronic databases in our field, providing the sample size and statistical power of potentially hundreds of institutions,” said SNIS PSO Medical Director Sameer A. Ansari, MD, PhD.
“This collaboration continues the expansion of our mission to harness the power of data to improve the quality of neurosurgical care. We welcome SVIN and look forward to working together,” said Kevin M. Cockroft, MD, MSc, FAANS, FACS, FAHA, Vice Chair of NPA’s Board of Directors.
Developed by physicians for physicians, NVQI-QOD captures 100% of procedures, including important demographic, procedural and post-operative 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.
