MPrOVE focuses on improving quality and demonstrating the value of care at Michigan Medicine, while at the same time catalyzing collaborative research efforts to inform state and national policy decisions. MPrOVE’s goal is to bridge the gap between research expertise and clinical needs so that every patient gets the care they need, but not the care they don’t need. This right-sized, high-value care can lead to improved outcomes and cost savings.
Value in healthcare is important for patients, doctors, hospitals, insurance companies - pretty much anyone who has a stake in how healthcare is delivered. But “value” is kind of hard to put your finger on. How can it be measured? How can it be improved? That’s where the Michigan Program on Value Enhancement – or MPrOVE – comes in.
MPrOVE works together with experts in research, design, management and clinical care to support transformative work in evaluation and implementation through the lens of appropriateness.
