Vizient™ Performance Management’s webcast series provides education to our members to boost performance improvement efforts. Join us on April 13th to hear from The Joint Commission about their Integrated Care Certification (ICC). The ICC certification recognizes hospitals and ambulatory care settings that excel at integrating information sharing and transitions of care as patients move between hospital and outpatient settings.

Vizient members strive to meet national health care standards by providing patients with access to quality and safe care while lowering overall health care costs. The ICC model provides a validated structure for meeting those requirements and improving patient outcomes.

During this webcast, you will hear from The Joint Commission as well as a Vizient member that recently attained ICC status.
