The High Value Healthcare Collaborative (HVHC) is a provider learning network committed to improving health care value through data and collaboration. To accomplish this, HVHC measures, innovates, tests, and continuously improves value-based care; rapidly disseminates and facilitates adoption of proven high value care models across HVHC Members and beyond; and advocates for policy and payment models that support sustainable high value healthcare.
A critical component to the HVHC approach is its data infrastructure, analytics, and tools. Using a highly secure data environment, the HVHC Program Management Office receives, cleanses, standardizes, and analyzes clinical and cost data from Members and other sources, including data for almost 40 million Medicare beneficiaries. HVHC Members use comparative analytics to support projects, research studies, and comparative reporting.
To-date, HVHC has focused its work on six high-cost, high-variation health conditions – diabetes, CHF, sepsis, and ailments of the hip, knee and spine requiring surgery. HVHC is running projects on OpenNotes, Advanced Illness, Meaningful Use Specialized Registry, Maximization of Outcomes for Value and Efficiency (hip, knee, spine), Sepsis, Delirium, and Dissemination Framework (with the Sepsis Care Model as first test case). Member teams are developing proposals for new projects and continuation of others.
