MVC Registry 

MVC provides an online registry with episode-based utilization metrics centered on administrative claims data from a variety of sources (see below). MVC data includes 30- and 90-day episodes for 40+ different medical and surgical conditions. These claims-based episodes include the index hospitalization, professional costs, post-acute care, and readmissions in the 30- to 90-day window following a patient's index discharge. These data are also price standardized and risk adjusted to allow for the study of practice pattern variation and fair comparisons across members. 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.

MVC Episode Structures

ED-Based Episodes of Care

MVC's registry data includes its traditional inpatient or surgery-based episodes of care, which are initialized by an index hospitalization for one of MVC's 40+ conditions and service lines. An episode includes the index event, professional costs, post-acute care, and readmissions. MVC registry users can utilize the episode components to better understand how their utilization metrics compare to others across the state, as well as to understand their patient's journey after their initial discharge.

MVC Inpatient/Surgery-Based Episodes of Care

ED-Based Episodes of Care

Although MVC's new emergency department-based episodes of care are not available on the registry, members may request custom analyses using these ED-specific episodes. MVC currently offers data for 15 ED-based index conditions, including abdominal pain, asthma, atrial fibrillation, cellulitis, unspecified chest pain, COPD, CHF, deep venous thrombosis, diabetes mellitus (short- and long-term complications), gastrointestinal bleed, pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, pyelonephritis/urinary tract infections, and syncope.

What We Offer

Registry Reports

MVC registry users can access a range of interactive data visualization reports for MVC's 40+ inpatient/surgery-based episodes of care. Reports such as the episode cost table, readmission table, payment by condition, or skilled nursing facilities report (to name a few) are some of the ways users can gain insights into cost opportunities. All figures on the registry are interactive, allowing drill-down to reveal more detailed information.

QE Data

MVC received accreditation as a Qualified Entity (QE) through the Qualified Entity Certification Program (QECP), also known as the Medicare Data Sharing for Performance Measurement Program, in 2022. As a QE, MVC was able to launch 20 new QE reports on the MVC registry, which gives authorized users the ability to drill down into patient-level Medicare data.

Registry Training

MVC offers one-on-one registry training to new or existing users tailored to your site's data, priorities, and questions. An MVC staff member would meet with you virtually to demonstrate the registry's functionality and filter options, and answer any questions about utilizing it to support your quality improvement efforts.
