Improving Wisely

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. Learn more at https://www.improvingwisely.org/.

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.
