The 3M Value Index Score (VIS) is a single, holistic score that clearly quantifies how well a provider takes care of his or her entire patient population within a primary care system. It’s a population-centric value measure that complements existing quality and total cost of care (TCC) metrics.
3M VIS delivers efficient, continuous and objective measurements of the processes and outcomes that can lead to value for the patient and across the full spectrum of primary care.
As health care moves quickly toward value-based care, payers and providers need a way to capture value—performance as it relates to cost. Other existing performance measures aren’t ideal for these new models. They don’t account for costs, shared accountability or the impact of the health system. Often, they tend to be process-focused, expensive, burdensome and disease specific.
What’s needed is a standard metric to assess health care value that works with existing cost and quality metrics, and doesn’t require extra data collection and reporting.
The 3M℠ Value Index Score (VIS) is a composite measure that evaluates the provider actions that lead to healthy patients. As shown in the table below, it is based on six critical primary care domains, which are derived from 16 measures of key processes and outcomes linked to value in health care. As a result, 3M VIS can enhance an organization’s understanding of overall provider and system performance, prioritizing the areas where improvement is needed.
3M VIS to meet these needs:
The image below is a sample view from a 3M VIS dashboard. It lists the individual providers within a specified practice, their respective 3M VIS, and their performance rating on each domain that composes their overall 3M VIS. Users can also drill down to see scores for the individual measures that comprise each domain. All names and data are demonstration data only.
