The University of Rochester has a robust procurement team that is successful in many areas.  However, we believed that there were remaining opportunities in the area of purchased services, and we were interested in finding a consulting partner to help reduce these non-labor expenses.  Through a very comprehensive search of the marketplace, we heard about VIE’s reputation for driving savings, and chose them based on their breadth and depth of knowledge.
VIE offered unmatched support to the University of Rochester and we utilized VIE Healthcare’s forensic analysis team identify new opportunities for savings.  VIE provided our team with insight into industry trends, delivered results, and consistently closed on projects.  VIE mentored our team members to ensure sustainability, and thanks to the training they offered our employees, we will be able to continue using their cost-saving strategies in the future.

I have worked with Lisa and VIE Healthcare on more than one project and found her and her team to be subject matter experts in the O.R. VIE has an affinity for details and picks up things that many have missed in prior reviews. They have access to a variety of experts within the perioperative environment.

I am pleased to recommend VIE Healthcare. Virtua began our partnership with VIE in 2011 and have achieved success in reducing costs while maintaining quality across several departments. Notably, VIE performed an examination of our Real-Estate Leases, which yielded savings for Virtua. Throughout the process, VIE reviewed their process with us before they began and then providing frequent updates. The VIE team is quick and efficient and is conscious to never interfere with ongoing hospital operations.

Rarely do I feel compelled to write a letter of commendation, however, I wanted to thank you for the excellent work that you performed in negotiating the telecommunication contracts for the health system. The system realized tremendous unanticipated savings as well as refund checks. I appreciate that you were able to accomplish this with minimal involvement of our staff. I look forward to working with you on additional cost savings initiatives.

Our clients have shared their thoughts
On VIE’s work
on an anonymous customer satisfaction survey:

They handled themselves exceedingly well. All targets were met.

VIE is a progressive, enthusiastic company which has a unique expertise in cost saving strategies and strategic planning. I have been very impressed with the wealth of information and ideas that they have shared in order to help our organization save money and become more efficient. The more we work with VIE, the more opportunities for savings we have identified. I would highly recommend VIE to any organization that is interested in saving money, reducing waste and increasing efficiency. In addition, they work on a percentage of savings with no obligation if no savings are found.

VIE is a confident take charge group, which moves with considerations to their client’s project objectives, on an accelerated basis. The high energy applied reflects directly on the outcomes achieved. VIE will not promise deliverables that are not within grasp of the client. Their reasonable approach to a project is a great characteristic.

VIE did a great job. We’re now engaging them again for additional initiatives. Good communication and attention to detail.
