Hospital Engagement Networks

Reducing patients' hospital-acquired conditions and readmissions is more important now than ever. Our Hospital Engagement Networks (HENs), part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) Partnership for Patients initiative, improves patient safety through our consulting services and learning collaboratives. Partnership for Patients and the Hospital Engagement Networks nestled under this initiative are one part of an overall framework established by the Affordable Care Act to spend dollars more wisely and improve care.

Most recently, CMS chose Vizient™ as one of 17 health care organizations for its HEN 2.0 program. In this second round with CMS, we are continuing to develop learning collaboratives for hospitals and pioneer a wide array of initiatives to improve patient safety.

From 2010-2013, Partnership for Patients achieved the following results:

  • 50,000 fewer patients died in hospitals
  • Approximately $12 billion in health care costs saved as a result of a reduction in hospital-acquired condition
  • 1.3 million adverse events and infections avoided in hospitals
  • 17 percent decline in hospital-acquired conditions

A coordinated approach to better health care

As health care shifts to value-based reimbursement, academic medical centers need new ways to improve care. Vizient is at the forefront of discovering new solutions that help our AMC members reduce costs, enhance the patient experience and improve quality of care.

For example, Vizient is participating in a collaborative, three-year pilot program to develop a new e-consultation platform. The member-driven project seeks to improve communication between primary care and specialty physicians and ensure timely access to specialist input.

With strategic insights, data analytics and business intelligence capabilities from Vizient, the pilot technology will be integrated into the electronic medical records of five participating members:

The project was first developed by the University of California, San Francisco, and is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Other participants include the Association of American Medical Colleges and Dobson DaVanzo & Associates, LLC, a health economics and policy consulting firm.
