Value Dashboard


In an effort to better understand how Virginia performs in terms of delivering health value, and to determine how we can facilitate action for improvement where necessary, VCHI led the development of the Virginia Health Value Dashboard.

The Virginia Health Value Dashboard was conceived as a strategy to prompt action for improving health value across the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Dashboard includes three broad aims encompassing a total of nine value indicators as approved by consensus at a joint meeting of the VCHI Board and Leadership Council on October 24, 2017. Each year, VCHI considers additional measures to add to the Dashboard.

Aim I: Reducing Low-Value Care

A. Utilization and cost of potentially avoidable emergency room visits

B. Low Value Services as captured by the MedInsight Health Waste Calculator

C.  Inappropriate Preventable Hospital Stays

Aim II: Increasing high value care

A. Virginians who are current with appropriate vaccination schedules

B. Comprehensive Diabetes Care

C. Clinically Appropriate Cancer Screening Rates

Aim III: improving the infrastructure for value-based care

A. Commercial in-Network Payments That Are Value Oriented

B. Claims in Virginia’s All-Payer Claims Database

C. Value-Oriented Payments that Place Doctors and Hospitals at Financial Risk for Their Performance
