The month of April officially marked a new era of cross-sharing knowledge and information between members from academic medical centers, large IDNs and community hospitals. Vizient Connections Summit was held April 13-15 and was the first national event for legacy VHA, University HealthSystem Consortium and Novation companies under the new Vizient brand identity. Healthcare Business Summit, MedAssets traditional annual member event, was held April 26-28 and was jointly hosted by Vizient and MedAssets+Precyse.

A foundational component of these national member events is recognizing member excellence. For a full list of the recipients of Excellence Awards from the Vizient Connections Summit, click here. For more information about MedAssets President’s Award at the Healthcare Business Summit, click here.

Networking and education continue this fall with a national member event focused on clinical quality and patient safety. Mark your calendars for Sept. 27-30 in Dallas. This program will also include an Innovative Technology Expo, something both Vizient and MedAssets have hosted in past events. Watch for more detailed information about the event and how to register.
