Value collaborative

DSC_0094c

The Michigan Value Collaborative (MVC) uses claims data to help hospitals understand variation in healthcare use, identify best practices, and lead interventions for improving care before, during, and after hospitalization. Member hospitals access the MVC data registry to evaluate trends in care utilization, re-admissions and post-acute care around 32 medical and surgical conditions. Hospitals can benchmark their utilization compared to other participating hospitals.
