Vizient and AAMC Launch Clinical Practice Solutions Center to Drive Efficiency for Physician Practices

Sponsored by Businesswire

and the AAMC (Association
of American Medical Colleges
) have launched the Clinical
Practice Solutions Center
(CPSC), an analytics platform for insights
that help drive efficiency for academic and community practice
organizations. CPSC is the only solution that provides physician
practices with actionable, comparative data and collaborative
intelligence to build a patient-focused, data-driven organization.

The CPSC — formerly known as the Faculty Practice Solutions Center
(FPSC), which only served academic practices — leverages the 20-year
partnership between Vizient and the AAMC. In addition to changing the
name, the enhanced platform expands the types of providers served to
include community-based physician practices as well as academic
practices, providing users with access to powerful analytic tools, peer
collaboration and advisory services to measure, monitor and drive
efficiency for clinical and financial performance.

“We are excited to launch the Clinical Practice Solutions Center with
its enhanced suite of analytics and tools. The changes were based on
input from members and demonstrate our commitment to support improvement
in practice design and the delivery of high-value care by aligning cost,
quality and market performance. By expanding the focus of the CPSC to
now include community practices, the richness of insight we’re able to
provide will also expand,” said David
, MD, group senior vice president, advanced analytics and
product management for Vizient.

“The Clinical Practice Solutions Center is a unique tool that is poised
to bring efficiency and value to physician practices and ultimately
improve patient care,” said Atul Grover, MD, PhD, AAMC executive vice

CPSC is more than a database. It is a provider and practice analytics
solution that gives practice plan administrators and clinical leaders
the insights to monitor and improve patient access and performance at
the specialty, subspecialty and provider level. The solution can be
utilized by individual practice providers to better understand:

  • Practice health: monitors physician productivity, identifies capacity
    constraints and analyzes service mix.
  • Patient access: highlights how current physician practice performance
    aligns to future service line strategies.
  • Patient outcomes: interprets quality and efficiency reports using
    comparative data.

“The AAMC and Vizient have had a long and productive partnership. We are
thrilled to have worked together to take the Clinical Practice Solutions
Center to an even higher level and look forward to the benefits that
will accrue for all of our members now and as we move into the future,”
said Janis Orlowski, MD, AAMC chief health care officer.

“We are pleased to continue our long partnership with the AAMC and
expand the solutions we offer. Having immediate access to key practice
health metrics is essential to lowering costs while also improving
patient access and outcomes,” said Colleen
, chief people officer for Vizient.
