Clinical Data Base surpasses 1,000 facilities

What started in the 1980s for academic medical centers to share outcomes data and best practices has grown to become the nation’s definitive analytics platform for hospital performance and improvement.

The Vizient® Clinical Data Base (CDB) welcomes more than 1,000 hospital facilities leveraging the platform’s outcomes data to benchmark against peers to reduce variation and identify and sustain performance improvements. As the number of CDB participants grows, so does the collective value of that data.

A clinical database that offers 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.

Vizient members have exclusive access to additional CDB and clinical benchmarking resources.
