Vizient FOrges Strategic Partnership with Mpirik to Improve Care in Cardiology
25 July 2022 - - US-based health care performance improvement company Vizient, Inc has forged a strategic partnership agreement with Mpirik, a cloud-based care pathway software company focused on cardiac care, that will enable physicians to make more informed decisions on patient care while helping to reduce undertreatment, the company said.

The strategic partnership expands access to patient assessment and clinical programs that improve care and helps address health equity with the use of technology including artificial intelligence.

Under the agreement, Vizient members who participate will have access to:

Automatic identification of cardiac at-risk patients to improve outcomes: Mpirik's algorithms will utilize diagnostic results, clinician notes and schedules from the health system's electronic health record to determine if a patient has any of 18 cardiac diseases and an appropriate care plan.

Automated patient identification alerts lead to decreased time from echocardiogram to intervention: Through the Cardiac Intelligence platform, clinicians and/or administrators can view their patient population, manage identified patients with the purpose of eliminating undertreatment, and receive automated alert notifications on patients identified without an appropriate follow-up plan.

Real-time aggregate reporting to improve health equity and market development opportunities: Health systems may access customized, real-time aggregate reporting dashboards to derive insights into their patient population including quality/data outliers, therapy outcomes, heat maps of population by zip code, and much more.

Vizient, Inc., the nation's largest health care performance improvement company, serves more than 50% of the nation's acute care providers, which includes 97% of the nation's academic medical centers, and more than 20% of ambulatory care providers.

Vizient provides expertise, analytics and advisory services, as well as a contract portfolio that represents more than USD 130bn in annual purchasing volume.

Vizient's solutions and services improve the delivery of high-value care by aligning cost, quality and market performance. Headquartered in Irving, Texas, Vizient has offices throughout the United States.

Mpirik developed a healthcare intelligence platform designed to identify critical findings, filter extraneous data, and facilitate communication by aggregating health data and tracking follow-up.

The program's algorithms augment the physician's ability to deliver excellence by objectively analyzing patients with heart disease at scale and ensuring their connection to timely care.
