The Michigan Value Collaborative (MVC) offers several opportunities for hospitals and physician organizations (PO) to collaborate and share best practices, from collaborative-wide meetings and workgroups to regional networking events and virtual webinars. MVC is thrilled to share its 2024 event calendar with a full list of currently scheduled events and registration links. Some events have yet to be scheduled for 2024, such as networking events or ad hoc webinars. Once scheduled, the 2024 calendar will be updated to include those dates and posted to the MVC events page.
MVC holds collaborative-wide meetings twice each year to bring together quality leaders from across the state for networking and peer learning. MVC usually shares updates and unblinded data and invites guest speakers to share success stories on topics of interest to members.
MVC will host its spring collaborative-wide meeting on Friday, May 10, 2024, in Midland, MI. The fall collaborative-wide meeting is set for Friday, October 25, 2024, in Livonia, MI. Registration is not yet available for these two meetings and will be shared with members in the months leading up to each date.
Workgroups consist of a diverse group of representatives from Michigan hospitals and POs that meet virtually to collaborate and share ideas. The 2024 workgroup topics include cardiac rehabilitation, health in action, post-discharge follow-up, preoperative testing, rural health, and sepsis. All MVC workgroups offered in 2024 will occur from 12-1 p.m.
Program Year 2024-2024 P4P Engagement Points
Many hospitals participating in the MVC Component of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) Pay-for-Performance (P4P) Program know that the program structure for Program Years (PYs) 2024-2025 includes up to two points for completed engagement activities. Many of the engagement offerings available to all members in 2024 will allow P4P hospitals to earn engagement points. One way that hospitals can earn engagement points is by presenting at a 2024 MVC workgroup, worth 0.5 points. Hospitals interested in presenting at a 2024 workgroup for P4P points must submit a presentation proposal form (link). For Q1 workgroup presentations in February or March, the deadline to submit presentation proposals will be extended to Dec. 15, 2023. MVC will review submissions on a rolling basis and communicate decisions and next steps as proposals are received.
The full MVC PY24 Engagement Point Menu is available here. Hospitals interested in earning P4P engagement points can mix and match from the included offerings to earn up to two points toward their PY24 scorecard. MVC hosted an Engagement Point Menu Webinar to introduce this menu and answer questions in November 2023. The webinar recording can be accessed here. In addition, MVC developed a Frequently Asked Questions guide available here.
