MVC Announces New ED-Based Episodes
MVC's newest episodes are initialized by a patient visit to the emergency department (ED) and incorporate all patient care from the index ED visit through 30 days post-ED for a variety of high-volume, ED-relevant conditions. Any MVC partners interested in seeing their organization's data for one or more available ED-based conditions are welcome to request a custom analytic report using this data.
MVC uses claims data from a variety of providers (see below) to create 30-day and 90-day episodes of care for 40 different medical and surgical conditions. The claims are price standardized and risk adjusted to allow for the study of practice pattern variation and fair comparisons across hospitals. At present, the MVC registry captures approximately 84% of the insured population of Michigan. For further details on MVC's methods, please see the MVC Data Guide from February 2022.
