Is the clinic becoming the hospital? National health care trends and market data suggest so: Patient care offered in non-acute, or outpatient, facilities will grow by 8 percent in the next five years, while inpatient care is projected to decline by 3 percent over the same period of time.* This means operational and supply chain executives must proactively manage their non-acute costs with the same level of rigor as their large, acute-care facilities.
Vizient offers an easy, comprehensive way to fully assess your non-acute supply chain continuum, manage your non-acute supply chain spend, standardize purchasing and implement the most effective savings opportunities for your organization.
Members who use our non-acute solutions realize savings across the continuum of care. Our solutions include:
- Contract implementation
- Savings programs
- Management tools
