Our build networks are shared business ventures and coalitions that accelerate return on invesment (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

Member Business Ventures

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 business ventures 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.

Our Member Business Ventures include member aggregation groups and other high-value business ventures that allow health systems to address challenges in today’s health care environment.

  • Collaborating on shared initiatives
  • Utilizing supply chain analytics
  • Monitoring commitment and compliance
