Engagement

MVC provides a number of engagement activities for hospitals and physician organizations (POs) to collaborate and share best practices. To participate in an engagement activity, please contact the MVC Coordinating Center here.

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

Previously, MVC hosted dinners around the state to engage hospital and PO leaders in discussions around chronic disease management and related data as well as provide networking opportunities.

Currently due to Covid-19, these are being held virtually as Coffee, Chat, and Collaborate events where attendees are offered a gift card incentive for joining.

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.

The slides from the May 2021 meeting can be found here and the recording can be found here.

The agenda for the October 2021 meeting can be found here.

Workgroups

Workgroups consist of a diverse group of representatives from Michigan hospitals and POs that meet virtually to collaborate and share ideas related to various topics. The current workgroup topics are:

  • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Chronic Disease Management
  • Joint Replacement
  • Sepsis
  • Diabetes

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.

Case Studies
