Care team optimization
Care is at the heart of all we do. The more access you have to data, the better you can maximize your care team’s performance. Vizient delivers the industry’s most trusted and timely insights to help manage and align care teams — physicians, nurses and allied health practitioners — for high quality, efficient patient care.
Center for Advancing Provider Practices (CAP2™)
Providers are under pressure to improve not only access to care, but also health care management. Many have responded by adding advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) and physician assistants (PAs) to their care teams.
CAP2 is the only national database designed to support the integration of APRNs and PAs into health care delivery teams. A collaborative effort by Vizient and the Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council, CAP2 provides the knowledge and tools you need to improve your scope and practice and to develop integrated care delivery models.
Provides information on 25,000 APRNs and PAs in 50 specialty areas and from more than 260 institutions nationwide. Includes benchmarking tools to track privileging and credentialing, competency assessments, billing, and human resources.
An interactive platform that helps integrate APRNs and PAs into your care teams. Incorporates benchmarking by location and organization, workgroups and conferences, tool kits, and more.
