MVC collaborates with the other BCBSM collaborative quality initiatives (CQIs) to promote value. By combining clinical and claims data, MVC is able to evaluate the impact and value of CQI-led clinical initiatives. These value assessments are performed in partnership with peer CQIs. MVC also partners with its peers to develop new conditions and push reports, and often consults with newer CQIs on metric development.
