PRESS RELEASE

M2S introduces the Analytics and Reporting Engine to its PATHWAYS platform and the Vascular Quality Initiative

West Lebanon, NH – September 14, 2012: M2S, Inc., the exclusive technology provider for the Society for Vascular Surgery® Vascular Quality Initiative® announces the release of its Analytics and Reporting Engine. This new reporting tool further enhances the value of the VQI® by empowering users to perform complex analyses with just a few mouse clicks.

The Analytics and Reporting Engine sets the VQI apart, providing custom reporting capabilities to give users complete control of their data analysis. Participants of the VQI may now select variables of interest and filter their data set to a desirable patient population for specific analyses. Additionally, users are able to benchmark results with their peers for further comparison of outcomes.

The value of benchmarking improves as VQI participation continues to expand. Today there are 200 centers and over 1,000 physicians collecting data in the VQI. Regional quality groups continue to develop as well and implement quality improvement projects to affect patient care at the local level. The SVS Patient Safety Organization (PSO) plans to accredit eight new regional groups by the end of this year in addition to the ten that are currently organized.

The VQI recently reached another milestone, capturing over 3,500 new procedures each month, making this the fastest growing, validated arterial vascular registry from which to benchmark. The Analytics and Reporting Engine further enhances the control and utility of that data to improve patient care, communicate about the best practices for delivering care with attention to containing costs.
