Vizient Connections Summit 2022
Learning with and from peers, colleagues, and experts who have discovered and uncovered best practices can shorten the time it takes to address professional practice gaps of the team, and to solve problems within the organization. This educational summit is designed to change the skills and strategy and/or performance of the healthcare team by actively engaging learners with clinical, quality and patient safety aspects of healthcare and process improvement.
The 2022 Vizient Connections Summit is designed to give our members the opportunity to share their knowledge, experiences, successes, and lessons learned with each other and presents learners with multiple opportunities to take home real life, actionable takeaways they can implement at their respective organizations after attending the conference and/or by participating in our enduring (on-demand) materials.
Based upon the 2021 member needs assessment survey, the Summit sessions and posters provide a through-line to successfully tackle some of the toughest challenges members currently face. Learner takeaways include proven strategies and tools to enable change and evolve care models. This education content illustrates the depth, sophistication, and impact of Vizient members’ work to improve patient care quality, safety, experiences, and outcomes, organizational effectiveness and efficiencies.
