How can our collaboratives help you? 

Outcomes data demonstrate that organizations participating in health care collaboratives have better results and reduce patient harm at a greater rate than nonparticipants. Experiences of participating members include:

  • A reduction in patient harm and readmissions, extending to lives saved
  • Increased revenue by eliminating potential value-based purchasing penalties imposed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)

From networking with peers and learning from work they’ve already completed to accessing resources from other projects within the program, the Vizient Performance Improvement Collaboratives and Benchmarking Studies program is sure to accelerate improvement at your organization.
