Editor’s Note: We would like to offer a very special welcome to our first AHVAP Perspective Column in Healthcare Value Analysis Magazine. Our ongoing goal with AHVAP is to bring a higher level of recognition to value analysis in our industry while continuing to bring educational resources to the healthcare value analysis and supply chain practitioners.

We would like to share some exciting things going on at the association as well as some new enhancements we are making with AHVAP’s web site, programs and educational offerings, such as:

AVHAP 10th Annual Conference—Scottsdale, AZ – Our Conference Planning Committee has been working very hard to bring you an outstanding program for this year’s AHVAP 2013 Annual Conference. They have lined up a great group of speakers for this year to cover the latest and most important subjects that our members want to learn about. The subjects include Utilization Management, Evidence Based Value Analysis, Key Collaborations, and much more. Remember, this is not only a great educational conference but a great networking and mentoring function where the very best of the best value analysis practitioners will be to share their insights and best practices with you.
