Value Analysis, Spelled A-H-V-A-P

The Association of Healthcare Value Analysis Professionals (AHVAP) began in February 2000 as a humble email Listserv, spurred by the need to create the very rudiments of an as-yet nascent profession. Three years later, this digital fellowship had grown from 6 to more than 100 members, who were increasingly insistent on an in-person meeting. From that meeting in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in 2003, AHVAP was formed: an organization of nurses and clinical profes-sionals energized by the mission to provide optimal val-ue in health care through education and collaboration.
