In light of the current pandemic, the MVC Coordinating Center is now working remotely for the foreseeable future. Thanks to technology, this will not impact on the support we are able to offer our sites and we will continue to be available as a resource to help members navigate this difficult situation. The Coordinating Center will be resuming all virtual activity as of week beginning Monday, April 6th. The dates for upcoming virtual workgroups and registry webinars can be found here.
While all virtual activity will continue, the MVC Coordinating Center has made the decision to cancel our Ann Arbor regional networking dinner scheduled for Wednesday, April 22nd. We have also taken the decision to cancel our in-person May 8th semi-annual meeting and instead hold a short 30 minute virtual webinar. As healthcare professionals, we know it is important to put your safety and the safety of your patient’s first. We also appreciate that time is a valuable resource right now. This virtual meeting will highlight current activities that the Coordinating Center is undertaking to help support members through the current pandemic and beyond. Invites and more information will be shared soon.
The Coordinating Center is exploring ways of supporting members through other channels in the coming months. As part of this, we are working closely with a number of CQIs to provide timely data to inform your ongoing activity. Everyone at the MVC Coordinating Center is committed to supporting you through this difficult time so please let us know if there are any areas where we can help (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The goal of the Michigan Value Collaborative (MVC) is to improve the health of Michigan through sustainable high-value healthcare. 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 85 acute care hospitals and over 30 physician organizations 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.
