ELLICOTT CITY, Md., June 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Warrior Centric Health (WCH)® announces an agreement with Vizient, Inc. for the Warrior Centric Health Solution Suite™. The agreement offers Vizient member health systems enhanced access to a suite of tools that enable them to deliver optimal care to the huge, diverse, and underserved population of military service Veterans and their families who access care from commercial hospitals. WCH believes the recently enacted Mission Act both highlights and intensifies the urgent need for wide adoption of this solution.
Vizient, the nation's largest member-driven health care performance improvement company, serves over half of the healthcare organizations in the U.S. Vizient's diverse membership base includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute health care providers, together representing approximately $100 billion in annual purchasing volume. The new agreement radically streamlines interactions between WCH and Vizient's member health systems.
Said Chris Moreland, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Advocate at Vizient: "We believe implementing Veteran Population Health Services as part of our solutions strategies offers an important new path to overall improvement in American healthcare. The WCH Solution Suite is a cost-effective way for our members to begin implementing these strategies immediately."
The WCH Solution Suite answers an urgent need in a nation where the vast majority of Veterans and their families—as many as 75 million Americans— receive all their care in commercial hospitals. Adopting the WCH Solution Suite enables hospitals to improve their ability to deliver healthcare to Veterans and their families.
Developed over the course of more than a decade, in close consultation with the Department of Defense and major medical institutions, the WCH Solution Suite comprehensively addresses the Veteran health crisis through clinician education, training competency, and continuing education requirement as well as data analytics and patient communication, each of which is delivered via a solution platform. The solution suite is easy to adopt and completely scalable. To begin benefitting, a Vizient member simply needs to choose to become a Warrior Centric Authorized Facility.
