Vizient and Captis announce partnership to create an integrated supply chain for network

Feb. 12, 2019

Vizient announces it will create a centralized item master tool for a supply chain innovation program envisioned by the Captis network of member hospitals and providers.

The new solution will begin to establish a virtual, cohesive supply chain capable of sharing timely information among the network’s members, suppliers, and staff. Captis is a collaborative, member-driven and owned aggregation group with over 80 health systems, 300+ contracts in its portfolio and $10 billion in annual member supply spend.

Captis is supported by two service providers, Mayo Clinic Supply Chain and Vizient Member Business Ventures. Over the past year, Captis members have defined the program vision and provided business plan input. As a result of these efforts and a rigorous vendor selection process, Captis members have chosen Vizient to develop the program.

Vizient will leverage its supply operations solutions, internal supply chain experts as well as innovative technical capabilities to reduce supply chain costs through the streamlined platform.
