AMCs provide world-class services, ensure access for underserved populations, train the next generation of health care professionals and drive major health care innovations.

As markets increasingly focus on cost and value, and as payment models evolve, many AMC leaders are questioning how they can continue to grow and support their mission while competing against agile, lower-cost providers.

Sg2 supports academic medical centers across the country in navigating these changes by identifying effective strategies and pathways for both current and future success.

of AMCs across the US rely on our data, analytical tools and expertise to help them plan, build, partner and succeed in their markets.

How we can help

Strategies for sustainable success

Our teams develop original research on recent topics such as high-acuity facilities of the future, opportunities for expanding destination care, value-based care strategies for AMCs and service line structures that promote growth.

Education and Engagement With AMC Peers

Because of our long history of working with academic medical centers, we understand the unique challenges these systems face in today’s health care environment. We offer strategic, peer-to-peer learning opportunities for AMCs across the nation through large-scale events, smaller group meetings and networking opportunities for candid conversations and knowledge sharing. Our parent company, Vizient®, also works with 95% of AMCs across the US. The Vizient University HealthSystem Consortium provides a vital platform for AMC members, enabling colleagues to collaborate and position themselves for future success.

Identify Smart Growth Opportunities

The patient populations treated by AMCs can differ significantly from those treated at community hospitals. For this reason, we have developed a Tertiary Forecast grouper within our Impact of Change® forecast to identify patients requiring complex and multidisciplinary care.

Destination Care Database

Using a national claims database, we help AMCs understand how far patients travel for care by disease and procedure. We also provide benchmarking against other AMCs, teaching hospitals and advanced community hospitals to inform strategies for extending the reach of complex care.
