MVC Coordinating Center Looking Back at 2023 and Forward to 2024

MVC Coordinating Center Looking Back at 2023 and Forward to 2024

On behalf of the MVC Coordinating Center, I’d like to start by wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year! MVC had an outstanding 2023, which included celebrating our 10th anniversary and continued support of our hospital and physician organization members along with CQI partners.

Throughout 2023, MVC welcomed three new hospital members to the collaborative, distributed 17 push reports, grew its analytic offerings by adding ED-based episodes of care, delivered 24 custom analytic requests, hosted 24 virtual workgroups across six focus areas, advanced both of its value coalition campaigns, completed 37 member meet and greets, and hosted two collaborative-wide meetings. Additionally, several exciting improvements were made to the MVC registry, including new reports for payment and value metrics for Program Year (PY) 2024-2025 of the MVC Component of the BCBSM Pay-for-Performance (P4P) Program along with new measures and filters for long term acute care hospital utilization.

As MVC begins its 11th year, the Coordinating Center is excited to continue to advance the vision of more sustainable, high-value healthcare in Michigan. As highlighted in a recent blog outlining MVC’s refreshed strategy, there are a number of developments planned to advance our work in the areas of population health management, sites of care across the continuum, patient-centeredness, and equity. In addition to these strategic pillars, MVC has several operational plans for the coming year that I am excited to share with you.

New Engagement Point Menu for PY 2024

For hospital members participating in the MVC Component of the BCBSM P4P program, PY 2024 kicks off the new engagement point component of the program cycle’s scoring structure, which was developed as a mechanism for increasing and enhancing collaborative learning across the MVC network. Using MVC’s engagement point menu, participating members can choose the MVC engagement offerings that best meet the needs of their site to earn up to two points toward their PY 2024 score. Please visit MVC’s PY 2024 Engagement Point Menu for a complete list of offerings. For additional information on MVC’s PY 2024 engagement point component, you may access the MVC PY 2024 Engagement Point Webinar.

Actionable Data through MVC Push Reports

In 2024, MVC will continue to provide members with site-specific push reports to support quality improvement. Several new reports will be added to MVC’s suite of reporting in 2024, focusing on topics such as statewide health equity, pharmacy utilization, and alternative sites of care. The Coordinating Center will work closely with members, the broader CQI community, and other stakeholders to ensure the continued distribution of novel and valuable reporting.

Collaborative-Wide Meetings and Virtual Workgroups

The MVC Coordinating Center will host two collaborative-wide meetings in 2024. MVC’s spring 2024 meeting will take place on Friday, May 10 at the H Hotel in Midland, and the fall 2024 meeting will be held on Friday, October 25 at the VistaTech Center in Livonia. We are in the process of planning engaging agendas and are excited to see you in person at these events. Keep an eye on MVC’s blog as additional details are announced throughout the year.

Additionally, the Coordinating Center’s suite of peer-to-peer virtual workgroups will continue to provide a highly accessible online platform for hospital and PO members to come together, collaborate, and share practices. The 2024 workgroups will include series focused on MVC’s PY 2024-2025 P4P value metrics – cardiac rehabilitation, post-discharge follow-up, preoperative testing, and sepsis – along with a health in action series and a newly launched rural health series. To review the complete list and register for specific workgroup dates, please visit MVC’s 2024 Events Calendar.

Assessing Value and Site-Specific Opportunities

The MVC Coordinating Center continued its efforts in 2023 to help partners measure the impact of their initiatives from an investment and value perspective. MVC’s expertise in this area and its strong relationships throughout the CQI portfolio led to the commission and completion of three value assessment exercises last year with additional value assessments underway for 2024. Similarly, MVC continues to offer its members the ability to request custom analyses to better understand site-specific areas of interest and opportunity. If you are interested in a custom report, please submit a Custom Analytics Request and a member of the MVC team will follow up.

As we kick off 2024, I’d like to thank our hospital members, PO members, and CQI partners for their continued collaboration and support. We look forward to working with you throughout the coming year!
