Robert T. Yokl, President, Strategic Value Analysis® in Healthcare (SVAH) announced today the launching of the new Healthcare Value Analysis Magazine. When asked why a new magazine is needed in healthcare, Yokl stated, “It’s because value analysis is going to become an even more important component of the financial and quality success of healthcare organizations throughout the country. Therefore, our goal, with this new magazine is to provide our readers with unique value analysis and utilization management strategies, tactics and methodologies while offering alternative views on the cutting edge challenges that supply chain and value analysis professionals face today.”
Further, Yokl says, “We see a need for forward thinking value analysis best practices, benchmarks and training that we believe we are uniquely qualified to bring to our readership due to our 25- plus years in the healthcare value analysis arena.” Robert W. Yokl, Managing Editor of this new magazine adds to this thought, “Let’s face it, value analysis has high name recognition in our healthcare industry but there are many fundamental differences in philosophy, methods and practices that we believe needs a helpful voice to bring everything into perspective.”
The new magazine’s mission is to explore new vistas and go boldly where no other supply chain magazine has gone before. Our goal is to bring readers the best savings strategies and practices thus helping hospitals, systems or IDN’s value analysis teams and committees move to the next level of performance. The new magazines scope is endless when you think about the multitude of savings opportunities on the hundreds of thousands of products, services and technologies purchased on a daily basis by each and every healthcare organization in the country.
The bottom line with this new magazine is to help promote the best of the best strategies and methods in value analysis and then to pass them along to our value analysis community thus benefiting everyone in the healthcare value analysis world. This is a continuing journey for SVAH where we need to up our game to a new level in our writing, teaching and research to improve our own core competencies.
