Analytics and expertise to manage clinical expenses

Health care costs continue to rise. One step toward lowering health care costs is to manage your clinical expenses using our analytics and expert consultants. Our data-driven approach to clinical cost management aligns price, process and utilization.


  • Improvement in physician engagement
  • Ability to compare supply costs and utilization with patient outcomes
  • Optimized utilization to reduce service line variation and reduce costs

Clinical Cost Management

Our clinical cost management solutions include:

Physician preference items

Financial pressures are not going away. Managing utilization and costs for physician preference items (PPI) continues to be a hot topic and primary challenge for health care providers. We help our members implement the appropriate utilization and cost strategy for hard-to-manage PPI categories in orthopedics, spine, cardiology and more. Through a proven process, we engage key physician stakeholders to gain buy-in on strategy and be key leaders in driving utilization and cost management throughout the organization.

Comprehensive lab and blood management

Blood transfusion is one of the most overused treatments in modern health care. To address this growing problem, we designed a comprehensive lab and blood management solution to assess current utilization of blood products and provide guidance for improving patient outcomes.

Through this solution, our members realize savings in the cost of blood transfusions, and reductions in clinical variation, risk of complications and length of stay.
