Using Data to Improve Quality in Venous Care
What is Improving Wisely?
In 2018, the AVLS developed a partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Johns Hopkins University.
Improving Wisely harnesses big data to analyze practice patterns and practice variations by standard deviation.
Improving Wisely provides:
- Confidential, individual reports for each provider based on their Medicare claims data
- Benchmarking and peer learning opportunities
Why Improving Wisely?
One-third of healthcare expenditures are wasteful and do not improve health, creating a national imperative.
The First Step
Reports are being mailed to physicians who performed a minimum number of venous ablations.
