Creating Exceptional Value in Healthcare

The Association of Healthcare Value Analysis Professionals (AHVAP) is an organization created from a nucleus of nurses and clinical professionals whose expertise bridges the gap between clinical practice and the supply chain processes. Using evidence-based data, professional experience, and an understanding of the cost/quality continuum, Value Analysis professionals guide clinical and other providers in the product, services and technology review and selection process and assist with the resolution of quality concerns.  Value analysis professionals collaborate internally with physicians, technologists, therapists, clinicians, non-clinicians, and executives and externally with suppliers, distributors, and group purchasing organizations to assure effective quality outcomes and improve the overall cost of healthcare.
