The MVC Coordinating Center recently released the full agenda for its forthcoming spring Semi-Annual Meeting on Friday, May 13, 2022, from 10-11:30 a.m. The MVC Coordinating Center holds collaborative-wide meetings twice each year to bring together quality leaders and clinicians from across the state. This meeting’s theme of “turning data and collaboration into action” reflects how members often balance multiple internal and external data sets in addition to a broad portfolio of resources from MVC and other CQIs.
Speakers at semi-annual events are often members who share their successes, challenges, barriers, and solutions in pursuing a higher value and quality of care. The speakers outlined on May’s meeting agenda will share examples of quality initiatives that successfully leveraged data or collaboration to bring about improvements in healthcare. The speakers also represent a variety of stakeholder groups, including hospitals, physician organizations (POs), payers, and of course MVC Coordinating Center leadership.
The first guest presentation will be from hospital leaders at McLaren Port Huron’s Quality Improvement and Organizational Excellence team. Regional Director Mary Pool and Manager Holly Gould will discuss partnering for clinical efficiency and effectiveness. This presentation will be followed by Michelle Marchese, Director of Care Delivery Analytics at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM), who will present about how BCBSM’s Physician Group Incentive Program (PGIP) supports value-based care. The final guest presentation of the day will feature PO members and comes from leaders at the MyMichigan Collaborative Care Organization. Dr. Shannon Martin, Primary Care Council of MyMichigan Medical Group, will present on affecting medication overload in seniors.
Attendees can also expect to hear from MVC Coordinating Center leadership and staff about the MVC Component of the BCBSM Pay-for-Performance (P4P) Program, as well as insights on how performance in the areas of preoperative testing and cardiac rehabilitation utilization compares across the collaborative.
At the conclusion of the meeting, attendees will be able to identify the value of a variety of data sources and collaboration opportunities to assist with implementing and evaluating quality improvement projects. The full agenda can be accessed online here.
