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 continue to deliver virtual engagement activities. If interested in learning more, please email us here.
While all virtual activity will continue, the MVC Coordinating Center has made the decision to cancel our in-person regional networking dinners, but replace them with virtual regional networking events. As healthcare professionals, we know it is important to put your safety and the safety of your patient’s first.
The Coordinating Center is exploring ways of supporting members through other channels in the coming months. For example, we recently shared metrics on resource utilization for several common elective procedures to guide hospitals' surgical ramp-up efforts. 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 97 hospitals and 40 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.
