Achieve systemwide quality improvement
Through a single platform, the Vizient Clinical Data Base allows members to measure quality and financial performance compared with other hospitals. It provides 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; and reduce variation.
Our holistic approach to operational improvement addresses case management, patient throughput, care delivery and length of stay. With our advanced data and collaborative consulting approach, our members have enhanced their clinical performance and improved case margins, quality and case coordination.

As health care organizations continually strive to reduce clinical variation, one of the biggest challenges is order set appropriateness and consistency, and the workflow that leads to ordering and clinical decision-making. At a high level, organizations generally know where variation opportunities exist. But having visibility into resource utilization at the provider level can be elusive but necessary to pinpoint areas of opportunity and implement widespread change.
With the Q&A scorecard, we can see that we’re making improvements faster than our peers.
