Our guest is Dr. Uchenna Onyeachom, Director of Endovascular Researh at Heart and Vascular Outcomes Research Institute in Beverly, Massachusetts, http://www.hvori.org/ We will be talking with him about the Venous Patient Outcome Registry. We will talk about the kinds of conditions, including peripheral venous disease and varicose veins, about which information is being collected, and why patients and physicians might want to participate.
The Venous Patient Outcome Registry (VPOR), the first-ever patient-centered online registry, was developed to assess patient outcomes and quality of life for the various treatments of venous disease by standardizing the collection and analysis of clinical information, patient trends and practice patterns by specialists nationwide. Since its launch , VPOR is already recruiting sites and patients from all regions of the United States.
VPOR aims to provide clear, impartial evidence on the effectiveness, benefits and harms of available treatment options for both patients and physicians. Align the needs of patients with the performance of physicians, VPOR will help to translate research findings into information that is useful to clinicians, policy makers, payers and regulators for better patient care. www.venouspatientregistry.org
