I asume when you say you need to work on your river call efficiency that you pay off to much. Therefore you need to stop calling with marginal hands and generally call less. Call/Raise when you know you have the best hand.
There is something in HUDs called WTSD(went to showdown) and W$SD(won money on showdown). The lower the WTSD stat is the higher the W$SD will be. That means you went to showdowns with less hands, but with more effeciency cause you get it in when you know you're best. Depending on your strategy your WTSD should be 25-35, and your W$SD should be around 50-60%. If you see a player with a WTSD higher than 40 you value bet. If he has around 20 WTSD you can try to bluff him if he didn't show strength before, becouse players with low WTSD generally have high W$SD percentage, so be careful.
