Clinical-supply integration

Clinical-supply integration is an ongoing, interdisciplinary strategy that informs decision-making to optimize utilization of products or services while eliminating harm, improving outcomes and lowering costs.  Vizient® believes success requires capabilities in four domains of performance: engagement, insights, knowledge and process.

Our new Clinical Supply Integration Workshop provides a framework and useful information to help you begin to implement a system-based approach to remove practice variation around the consumption of medical devices, medical equipment and pharmaceuticals.

Building on the success of the Value Analysis Fundamentals Workshop, our new Clinical Supply Integration Workshop is a multi-day series of virtual sessions led by Vizient subject matter experts and will ultimately help providers advance clinical supply decision making to improve costs, quality and outcomes.

During this workshop, you will obtain guidance and coaching to establish shared ownership and responsibility among physicians, clinicians and supply chain personnel, and apply a consistent process designed to reduce health care waste.

Registration fees, learning objectives and FAQs are available on the registration page.

This event is available exclusively to Vizient members. Contact us to learn how you can gain access to this workshop and other educational opportunities.
