Our Mission

We believe transparency can transform healthcare purchasing to improve health outcomes and lower costs. Validation Institute advocates for a results-based, outcome-driven market with a three-pronged approach: validating vendor performance, educating the buyers of healthcare, and creating an exclusive community where the two can connect.

About Us

Validation Institute is an independent, third-party resource for healthcare purchasers and vendors and benefits advisors. Our focus is on transparency across the healthcare market as a way to reduce healthcare costs and improve outcomes. We move this forward by assuring that a vendor’s performance claims will materialize in practice, that healthcare buyers are educated on key health value and purchasing topics, and that the two sides have an easier time connecting.
