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.

What is a Certified Health Value Professional (CHVP) Designation?

Created and presented by industry-leading subject matter experts and in-field practitioners, the CertifiedHealth Value Professional (CHVP) program is a self-paced, online course that provides specialized training focused on healthcare benefits purchasing/management, outcomes, and costs.

Candidates are typically responsible for the purchasing and/or management of healthcare benefits. They may work in finance, benefits, or human resources. Our wide range of topics makes this program perfect for both experienced and senior personnel, like your CFO, Controller, or Benefits Administrator, as well as those new to the field or looking to advance their career.

What is a Certified Health Value Advisor (CHVA) Designation?

The Certified Health Value Advisor (CHVA) course is a detailed, instructional program for brokers, advisors, consultants, employers, HR professionals, CFOs, and providers on delivering transparent, high-quality, and value-driven health benefits.

This course educates stakeholders on why our healthcare system delivers the low clinical and high-cost outcomes it continues to deliver and practical solutions that can be easily implemented into employer-sponsored plans of all sizes.

Validation Institute proudly recognizes those who have already completed its CHVP and CHVA programs.
