Advanced analytics and deeper insights to identify performance gaps and drive collaborative improvements

When it comes to performance improvement, knowing where to start is often the biggest hurdle. The answers come from analyzing quality and cost data together.

Visibility across the continuum is required to identify performance gaps and to create actionable insights that drive improved outcomes. The challenge is taking an abundance of data, organizing it, and connecting quality and financial metrics to drive decision making.

A patient-centered approach to optimizing ambulatory access

Improving access to care is a strategic priority for most academic health systems and a challenge for nearly all. To address that challenge, the AAMC and Vizient sought insights from ambulatory care leaders, physicians, and staff in academic medical centers whose organizations’ access performance has been exemplary.

Transparent data for reliable insight 

The Vizient® Clinical Data Base (CDB) is the definitive health care analytics platform for performance improvement. CDB provides high-quality, accurate and transparent data on patient outcomes — such as mortality, length of stay, complication and readmission rates, and hospital-acquired conditions — that enable hospitals to benchmark against peers; identify, accelerate and sustain improvements; reduce variation; and expedite data collection to fulfill agency reporting requirements. Clinical benchmarking tools such as dashboards, simulation calculators, and templated and customizable reports enable you to quickly identify improvement opportunities and their potential impact.

Vizient offers members additional tools to improve their efficiency, including Resource Manager and Core Measures:

Resource Manager

Resource Manager enhances patient- and physician-level data in the CDB by providing comparative utilization information for select clinical categories such as pharmacy, imaging, laboratory, blood and cardiovascular-vascular services. This information highlights clinical practice variation patterns and helps determine which resources are being used effectively.

Core Measures

Core Measures helps fulfill data reporting requirements for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, The Joint Commission and state agencies, and compares your organization's performance with clinical benchmarks.

To provide greater functionality and better enable member needs related to value-based care, Vizient is collaborating with Medisolv, Inc., a recognized leader in quality management and reporting, on an enhanced solution for Core Measures abstraction and regulatory reporting. Vizient will continue to offer Core Measures as part of our CDB offering and Medisolv will manage the actual data service and submission process.
