Why is a Value Analysis Academy Important?
Training – Tools – Strategies – Systems – Best Practices – Certification
The leadership team at Healthcare Value Analysis & Utilization Management Magazine have, for some time, perceived the need for comprehensive basic, intermediate, and advanced value analysis and utilization management resources, tools, and training for new and experienced value analysis practitioners.
We have come to this conclusion since value analysis and utilization management are evolving disciplines without an extensive library of resources, tools, and training programs to educate, coach, and support the current and next generation of value analysis leaders. That’s why we have established the Value Analysis Academy to fulfill this mission of providing the most comprehensive value analysis and utilization management resources, tools, and training in the healthcare industry.
