UCI Health strives to maintain proper balance between providing cost-effective patient care and utilizing new, emerging medical technologies in healthcare. UCI Health's Value Management Committee dedicates steadfast commitment to establishing a culture of continuous medical innovation in a fiscally responsible manner.

This multidisciplinary committee works to improve patient care and control product costs through the emphasis on the purchase and utilization of cost-effective, high-quality products through an extensive process of determining clinical efficacy, product evaluation, and financial impact to UCI Health.

In order to expedite this process, Clinical Supply Chain, Procurement and Strategic Sourcing have implemented an electronic submission process for a New Product Request to the Value Management Committee.

Once a request has been submitted, the Value Analysis Manager, the Clinical Budget Responsible Director/Manager, the Department or Division Chair/Chief, and the Value Management Committee will evaluate the request for its appropriateness. If approved, the requesting physician will receive acknowledgment of the VAC approval to move forward.
