Virginia Stroke Care Quality Initiative Advisory Group


Effective January 1, 2019, the Code of Virginia § 32.1-111.15:1 was amended to require the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to implement systems for stroke data collection and information sharing, apply evidence-based guidelines for community-based follow-up care, and implement a continuous process for stroke care quality improvement initiatives in collaboration with hospitals and emergency medical services (EMS) agencies.  VDH convened a Virginia Stroke Care Quality Improvement (VSCQI) Advisory Group to fulfill these requirements.

The VSCQI Advisory Group meeting Quarterly in person  from 8:30-9:40 on the third Friday of the months of January, April, July, and October. Members include representatives from the Virginia Department of Health, hospitals, emergency medical services, rehabilitation facilities and other Virginia stakeholders.
