Networks deliver collaborative power

In today’s environment, the primary mission of health care organizations often competes with many other priorities. Faced with capacity challenges, as well as new regulations, technologies and payment methodologies, providers find themselves overloaded with new tasks and hurdles — and the momentum is only accelerating.

Vizient was founded on the tenet that health care organizations achieve greater results more quickly when working together. And through Vizient Member Networks, our participants realize this goal.

 

Leading where you need to go

The Integrated Performance Solution brings together expert data and analytic insights from across Vizient and Sg2. Members can improve momentum progressing from strategy innovation and implementation to capturing real value in a matter of months.

Network engagement and collaboration drives value

Member Network participants have access to strategic thought leadership, actionable analytics and peer insights to rapidly solve problems and anticipate future disruption. Participants recognize a 3:1 return or greater value by engaging in the full offering.

Health care executives and leaders need trusted environments to raise issues, ask questions and collaborate. Our Executive Boards and peer networks are organized for the various needs of our participants.

CEO Executive Boards

Our CEO Executive Boards gain access to leading performance improvement practices, opportunities for knowledge exchange and strategies to prepare for the future of health care. CEO Executive Boards consist of CEOs from participating member organizations.

Member peer networks

Network participants convene based on their professional discipline, topic interests or segment. Additionally, system level executives convene to address the unique challenges of large health care systems. Network meetings enable health care professionals to connect locally, nationally and virtually.

Performance Improvement Collaboratives provide evidence-based research and collaboration to address challenges across the health care continuum. Participants from across Member Networks solve clinical and operational problems, pinpointing improvement opportunities through a research-driven model.

Data-driven approach leads to systemwide quality improvement

With CDB implemented in 12 of its facilities, Novant Health used the data to improve its quality and safety performance. New insights revealed points of variation in the system and enabled strategic planning to support a quality improvement culture across the system. With the strategy in place, Novant brought together 125 leaders to develop action plans.
