Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network provide funding for data collection, data audits, and data analysis to facilitate improved understanding of outcomes.

"This initiative closely connects to the Blues mission of improving the health and well-being of Michigan residents. It absolutely makes sense for us to support this quality collaboration," says David Share, M.D., MPH, senior associate medical director, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.

Through collaboration and data sharing, the initiatives are improving clinical quality, decreasing complications, decreasing costs and improving health outcomes. Value Partnerships addresses clinical quality in primary care, bariatric surgery, cardiology, breast oncology, general and vascular surgery, radiology and other pertinent health areas.
