AHVAP Launches New Position Statement on the Specialty of Healthcare Value Analysis
Dear AHVAP Members and Partners:
As we wind down the 2023 Value Analysis Week celebration, I am excited to share with you an exciting new Position Statement that is now available for both AHVAP members and the general public: Defining Healthcare Value Analysis as a Specialty. This newly developed and released document was designed to help define our specialty to stakeholders across the continuum of care. We recommend that you broadly share this new document with your leadership team, human resources department, recruiting staff, and other internal stakeholders to educate them about our specialty. If you are not already board certified in healthcare value analysis, now is the time to seek your CVAHP™ certification and the AHVAP Certification Center's new micro-certifications.
I would like to thank the efforts of the committee members who contributed to this position statement, who are listed below. This highly skilled group of experts from across our membership has rigorously worked on the creation and editing of this document over the last month. This is a Position Statement that all AHVAP members and healthcare value analysis professionals should be proud of!
