Davis, CA June 1, 2022 – Cedaron Medical is excited to announce a strategic partnership with Fivos Health, which will expand options for those who wish to participate in the Society for Vascular Surgery Vascular Quality Initiative (SVS VQI). The partnership combines Fivos’ robust registry platform services for medical societies with Cedaron’s data collection and management expertise for healthcare organizations.
Fivos provides national registry services for SVS VQI, which collects extensive data on vascular procedures, including devices used. Fivos PATHWAYS® is the cloud-based platform for SVS VQI’s 14 registries. Since its inception in 2011, SVS VQI has collected data on over 940,000 procedures and has emerged as the leading resource for quality vascular care and outcomes.
Founded in 1990, Cedaron is a leading software solution that automates data collection and validation at the point of care for over 50 national registries, including those from the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the American College of Radiology (ACR), the American Heart Association (AHA), and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). This partnership expands Cedaron’s list of certified registries to include the Society for Vascular Surgery Vascular Quality Initiative (SVS VQI).
Cedaron CEO, Karen Bond, stated, “We are excited to add vascular care to our quality outcomes portfolio. This partnership makes it possible for our customers to participate in SVS VQI through Cedaron’s intelligent automated data collection platform, providing a familiar user interface with established integration. By standardizing their registry activities, our customers can reduce training time and start-up costs.”
With the growth of participation expected to emerge from the partnership, SVS VQI data will become even more powerful for care providers. “We have seen vast improvement in patient outcomes as more data from registries has become available for study,” said Dr. Jens Eldrup-Jorgensen, Medical Director of the Society for Vascular Surgery Patient Safety Organization (SVS PSO). “Fivos and Cedaron both support VQI’s mission to improve the quality, safety, effectiveness, and cost of healthcare. Cedaron creates another path for centers to participate in VQI and we look forward to the contributions they will make through our registries.”
Fivos CEO, Jay Colfer, added, “The biggest barrier hospitals face when adding new registries is data collection. This partnership addresses that challenge by providing access to VQI through Cedaron’s certified registry software and data abstraction services. It was a natural fit to bring the three organizations together to expand the reach of SVS VQI with the common goal of ultimately improving vascular care for everyone.”
