Vizient forms strategic partnership with MDsave to power national direct-to-employer surgical-bundle solution  

January 25, 2023 – MDsave, the nation’s leading online healthcare services platform connecting providers, employers, and patients to transparent, transactable, and quality healthcare, announced today a strategic partnership with Vizient. MDsave was chosen as the technology platform to power Vizient’s High Value Network (HVN), a provider-led surgical care network focused on connecting multi-market, self-insured employers with high-quality health system partners. 

Vizient’s HVN, currently comprised of 14 top-tier health systems, offers bundled pricing to self-insured employers for select surgeries across 17 markets in the U.S. The surgical bundles include spine, joint, bariatric, and cardiovascular procedures and are offered across a combination of inpatient and outpatient delivery sites with at least one site within a two-hour drive for over 40% of the U.S. population. 

“We are giving employers a way to contract directly with the best providers in the country in ways that are transparent, predictable and seamless for the patient,” said Ben Gazaway, senior director of employer solutions at Vizient. “MDsave’s unique bundling and transaction technology is key to this offering.” 

In addition to technology supporting the HVN, the two organizations have collaborated to offer MDsave’s platform to all Vizient members to help them simplify and scale their direct-to-employer and self-pay patient strategies for the communities they serve.
