After more than two years of work (1000+ hours!) by dedicated volunteers, AHVAP was proud to unveil the long-awaited Value Analysis Courses and CVAHP certification at their Annual Conference. Owens & Minor University with whom AHVAP contracted to develop our Value Analysis on-line course, distributed CVAHP Handbooks to all and enrolled candidates for on-line courses. Handbooks are available on-line at:

AHVAP announced the accomplishment in a press release to Healthcare Purchasing News, a long-time supporter of AHVAP.

If you were not able to attend this year’s conference and do not receive HPN, Click here to view the press release.

One of AHVAP’s foundational strengths is the opportunity for networking with professional peers. If you are a member committed to Healthcare Value Analysis, share the announcement and the opportunity with your peers. Those new to the role are often desperately searching for education now available on-line and a personal recommendation is a powerful message about the value of professional certification.
