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.

CEO Executive Networks

Networks designed for the president and/or chief executive officer (CEO) that are member driven, creating a place for CEOs to establish trusted peer relationships for open dialogue and to gain actionable learnings for improvement. All offer input on the operation of their respective networks and serve as sounding boards for Vizient Member Networks and the company overall. Meetings, virtual and in-person, are designed to promote peer-to-peer connections, best practice sharing, collaboration and opportunities for knowledge exchange.

Peer networks

Our networks represent executives who influence and shape the future of their organizations and the industry. Member representatives inform the design of the network through a member advisory committee. The network experience includes meetings and webinars for leaders to connect with peers and subject matter experts to improve performance through Vizient’s data-driven thought leadership, leading practice sharing, problem solving and member roundtables. An example of our networks includes CFOs, COOs, CSOs, CMOs, CNOs, CQOs, Pharmacy, Supply Chain as well as 15+ additional senior leadership and discipline networks.

New service line networks are centered on providing a 360° view across cost, quality and market performance of a service line’s current state and market opportunities for members in all three products: Vizient Member Networks, Vizient Clinical Data Base and Sg2® Market Edge. Clinical and operational executives collaborate with peers and experts to examine and improve on key challenges and opportunities. We offer networks for cancer, cardiovascular, and coming in 2023 is neuroscience.

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. Members that engage in Performance Improvement Collaboratives drive improved performance and sustainable results, as well as material financial impact.

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.
