Engagement

MVC provides a number of engagement activities for hospitals and physician organizations (POs) to collaborate and share best practices. The 2022 event calendar includes a full list of events with registration links. To participate in an engagement activity, please contact the MVC Coordinating Center.

Site Visits

The MVC Engagement Team offers site visits to all collaborative members. Representatives from the MVC team engage virtually to meet with hospital or Physician organization leaders to deliver information on any requested topics, provide an overview of the registry data, push reports and ongoing quality improvement projects. Additionally, these visits provide the ability to spark ideas for potential collaboration, and summarize the benefits of being part of MVC.

Regional Networking Dinners with Hospitals & PO Leaders

MVC hosts dinners around the state to engage hospital and PO leaders in discussions around varying topics and related data as well as provide networking opportunities. These are offered at least once for each region so members may network with others in their geographic area.

Semi-Annual Collaborative Meetings

MVC holds meetings twice a year to bring quality leaders across the state together. The Coordinating Center invites speakers to share their stories of success, challenges, and barriers around the value coalition campaigns (VCCs) and other topics of interest to our membership.

MVC returned to in-person meetings in October 2022. Presentations included:

Webinars

The MVC Coordinating Center provides customized one-on-one webinars to review member’s specific facility or hospital data on the registry with any registry access request. The engagement team can also provide customized webinars to  individuals or designated groups at any hospital or physician organization to provide an in-depth overview of the registry and break down of facility data. These webinars help to identify specific areas of opportunity.
