A comprehensive Decision Support Solution (DSS) is critical in today's ever-changing economic and regulatory environment. Data-driven decision-making is required to gain clear visibility into critical volume, cost and profitability measures across the continuum of care. Strategic decisions — such as which service lines to grow, whether to consider risk-based payment models, or where operational changes or process improvement can drive savings — all require accurate and reliable cost and profitability analysis.

Confident decision-making supported with data

Vizient offers a level of expertise and innovation backed by more than 30 years of DSS experience. Our track record includes improving the financial health of more than 180 health systems, including more than 4,500 hospitals and 123,000 nonacute care health care providers.
