Our build networks are shared business ventures and aggregation groups that accelerate return on investment (ROI) through the power of scale. We enable members to drive value together through shared ownership models that move health care forward. Together, members share and apply proven methods to form, manage and sustain groups, helping them maximize benefits and avoid common pitfalls.
Benefits of networks that drive value:
- Achieve greater savings and operational efficiencies through scale
- Collaborate with like-minded members to share best practices
- Address problems spanning the entire business
Vizient pioneered the supply network concept as a way to deliver greater contract value to like-minded members. Today, Vizient has taken the supply network concept to the next level. Through Vizient™ Member Business Ventures, health systems can expand beyond traditional group purchase organization (GPO) services and connect with like-minded members to achieve their strategic goals, from cutting costs to improving patient care.
Member aggregation groups focus on topics such as reducing supply chain spend, physician and clinician alignment, increasing health system efficiencies and collaboration on best practice solutions leading to improved patient outcomes.
