AHVAP sincerely thanks the attendees, suppliers, sponsors and speakers who contributed to the success of the live 2021 AHVAP Annual Conference and Supplier Showcase.
The collaborative effort of the Conference Committee and AHVAP leadership to plan a safe, education rich, high-value networking experience was priceless!
A special thank you to WL Gore for sponsoring the keynote speaker Dr. Randy V. Bradley, who led us through a thought-provoking presentation on leadership that translated across the professional continuum to value analysis titled:
“Resilient Culture – Transitional Professional: Keys to Thriving Post COVID”
Attendees were treated to Rapid Fire Sessions as well as nine one-hour long presentations ranging from “An Evidenced Based Approach to Blood Conservation” to “Physician Lead Performance Improvement Projects” to “Successfully Transformed Acute Care Value Analysis Methodology to Meet the Needs of Non-Acute Settings”
Fifty-two supplier booths filled the exhibit hall and overflowed into the lobby. Many suppliers were first time attendees at an AHVAP conference and expressed how glad they were to find this group of talented healthcare value analysis professionals with whom they made many contacts.
A variety of suppliers also sponsored events from presentations, to breaks, lunches and receptions as well as custom made AHVAP logoed face masks, disposable face masks and hand sanitizer.
Thank you, conference committee:
