Vizient Sg2 Market Edge provides a wealth of information about competitive position, emerging market trends, consumer characteristics and potential business impacts. Most importantly, it provides localized, market-specific data to help you ensure that your strategic plans align with what's going on in your own market. This planning tool is mainly utilized by healthcare planning departments, service line leaders and other operational leaders across the institution. Some examples of the outputs for from this tool are reports on procedure demand by procedure codes, healthcare utilization rates, disease projections, insurance coverage estimates, population projections by zip code, age, gender, income level etc. These are all variables that we take in account when developing new business plans.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Membership to this on-line tool will support the planning process of the healthcare arm of the university.
