About Us

Who is the CPSC?

Built upon the foundation of more than 20 years of collaboration between the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and Vizient, the Clinical Practice Solutions Center (CPSC) has evolved from its initial focus on academic medical centers and their provider practices. As the market transformed, partnerships between community and academic organizations became more common. Patients sought quality care in their own communities, driving the need for smarter analytics, advisory services and a comprehensive data solution.

Helping You Build a Patient-Focused, Data-Driven Organization

Today, as the patient population once again shifts (this time toward ambulatory), the CPSC stands ready to help academic and community practice organizations like yours meet critical gaps in data management — a necessity for today’s dynamic health care environment. We’re pleased to serve medical practices of all sizes — academic, hospital-affiliated or independent — together with one powerful solution.

  • 90+ participating organizations
  • Over 140,000 providers
  • 126 specialties benchmarked
  • More than 5,000 users nationwide
  • Over 1.2 million reports run annually

The CPSC is much more than a database. It’s a full-service solution that fosters continuous collaboration, and drives innovation in strategy design, operational efficiency and revenue enhancement.

At the helm of our operation is the CPSC Advisory Board, serving as the voice of our members while driving improvements and value through the tools we offer. Group members include administrators and practice organization executives who collaboratively provide CPSC staff with feedback and input, helping to ensure that the CPSC solution continues to meet the needs of our members well into the future.
