The Vizient™ Center for Advancing Provider Practices (CAP2™) is a comprehensive web-based program that provides organizations with the knowledge and tools they need to optimally utilize advanced practice providers to improve clinical outcomes, reduce variation in practice and decrease cost.

Building effective provider teams to meet today’s value-based health care demands is more vital than ever. Advanced practice providers (APPs), including physician assistants (PAs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), have become an integral part of ensuring effective and efficient care, especially as baby boomers age and the physician shortage becomes more prevalent. Health care organizations need to create infrastructures to support advanced practice providers and ensure that every provider is working to the top of their license.

CAP2 provides members with real-time access to organizational assessments and benchmarking reports for acute and ambulatory settings. Members also have access to web-based tools and resources, an annual CAP2 Educational Series, the Annual CAP2 Summit, and the ability to query other members through the AskCAP2 list server. Participants also network through various member-driven work groups and a Thought Leaders Council.
