The goal of the Michigan Value Collaborative (MVC) is to help Michigan hospitals achieve their best possible patient outcomes at the lowest reasonable cost. It is a partnership between Michigan hospitals and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan/Blue Care Network. Working in conjunction with the many specialty-specific Collaborative Quality Improvement (CQI) programs in BCBSM’s Value Partnership Program, MVC aims to understand variation in healthcare use, identify best practices, and lead interventions for improving care before, during, and after hospitalization. The program improves healthcare quality across Michigan through rigorous performance feedback, empirical identification of best practices, and collaborative learning.
MVC is coordinated out of the University of Michigan and includes 75 participating acute care hospitals throughout the state of Michigan.
Support for the Michigan Value Collaborative is provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan as part of the BCBSM Value Partnerships program. BCBSM’s Value Partnerships program provides clinical and executive support for all CQI programs. To learn more about Value Partnerships, visit www.valuepartnerships.com.

The Obstetrics Initiative (OBI) is an interdisciplinary quality improvement project within MVC. OBI works to support vaginal deliveries and safely reduce the use of cesarean delivery among low risk births, with improved or stable rates of maternal and neonatal morbidity.
