The next generation of savings will require more sophistication from value analysis teams to include advanced tools, a more robust process and a focus on utilization management. Value analysis is not just about savings, it is about speed. For many value analysis committees, it takes from six months to a year to realize the savings on their projects and this is way too slow to meet the demands of the IDN that needs to cut costs now. In this discussion, a multi-disciplinary group of leaders will talk about strategies to speed up the process, engage practicing physicians in evaluations and decisions as well as how to automate the review process. You’ll learn about value analysis trends and connecting VAP-CE-quality to
cost decision governance models.
1. Determine how to engage internal audiences towards sustained improvement.
2. Explain the trends in value analysis that are impacting the supply chain.
3. Identity techniques to speed up the value analysis process.
