Dear Colleagues-Thank you for your continued work in value analysis and your continued membership in AHVAP. As we approach summer, I wanted to share with you some things we, your board are working on.
Our strategic plan is in place and we are working on several goals. The strategic plan is posted on the web site (www.AHVAP.org/about). Please take some time to read it; it is our roadmap for the future.
Value Analysis week is quickly approaching. July 16 – July 20, 2018. You will be seeing a flurry of activity on our social media sites in advance of our chosen week. I encourage you to recognize your value analysis teams and colleagues for their many contributions to healthcare. #IAmValueAnalysis
The annual conference registration is open, as is hotel registration. Our theme this year is Healthcare Value Analysis Evolution. We have an exciting line up of speakers and presentations. Come and learn and share your experiences, and use this opportunity to connect with colleagues. Oh, and maybe take a walk along the beautiful beaches of Clearwater. I encourage you to register early, and reserve your hotel rooms as soon as possible. We also have a new conference app to keep us all connected.
As our conference is aptly titled, healthcare is evolving, and value analysis is part of that evolution. Our ability to influence healthcare product and practice decisions based on cost, quality and outcomes is influencing and changing healthcare. Don’t be afraid of the change…embrace it!
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”
Have a safe and healthy summer. I’m looking forward to connecting with you again this fall.
