Jenn Andrews (MHA ’20), Vizient, Inc. Fellow

Jenn Andrews

In summer 2020, I will be entering into a fellowship position at Vizient, Inc. (Downtown Chicago location), the nation’s leading healthcare performance improvement company. Vizient, Inc. has been recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of the “Best Places to Work in Healthcare” and has been recognized by Forbes as one of “America’s Best Management Consulting Firms.” I was drawn to the fellowship position due to the emphasis on healthcare informatics and analytics, commitment to career development, and the opportunity to pursue a wide breadth of projects. As Vizient, Inc. has gone through several large-scale mergers and acquisitions in the recent years and with an increasing member-base, including 95% of the nation’s academic medical centers and 50% of the nation’s acute care providers, I will be able to interact with a variety of healthcare executives and organizations across the nation. Additionally, I was drawn to Vizient’s mission to strengthen each member’s delivery of care by aligning cost, quality, and market performance. The fellowship opportunity will provide me with a wide range of projects to utilize data to make actionable insights for the organization’s members. I could not be more excited to start my time at Vizient, Inc., an organization that is truly aiming to make a difference in healthcare.
