Welcome to the BMC2.org

Generous financial support for BMC2 PCI and VIC is provided to the BMC2 Coordinating Center, participating hospitals, to support the data abstraction costs and physician champions by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan and the Blue Care Network. This financial support is intended to make possible the participation in these quality improvement projects by eligible hospitals in Michigan. Support for BMC2 is provided by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network as part of the BCBSM Value Partnerships program. Although Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and BMC2 work collaboratively, the opinions, beliefs and viewpoints expressed by the author do not necessarily reflect the opinions, beliefs and viewpoints of BCBSM or any of its employees.

The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Cardiovascular Consortium (BMC2) is a collaborative consortium of health care providers in the State of Michigan which was created in 1997.  BMC2 is comprised of 4 statewide quality improvement projects:

  • A prospective multicenter statewide registry of consecutive percutaneous coronary interventions (BMC2 PCI).
  • A Primary PCI initiative, similar to BMC2 PCI.
  • A prospective, longitudinal multicenter statewide registry of consecutive peripheral vascular interventions, vascular surgeries and carotid interventions (BMC2 VIC).
  • Michigan TAVR, a structural heart quality improvement initiative operated in collaboration with the Michigan Society of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons.

All projects are designed to improve quality of care and patient outcomes. The collaboration across BMC2 overcomes the barriers of traditional market and academic competition. All projects collect, audit and organize data and report procedural variables and outcomes to individual operators and institutions.
