Health care purchasing professionals, vendors, and benefit advisors who want to improve outcomes and reduce healthcare costs can now earn a new industry credential, setting them apart. 


Troy, MI – June 2, 2021 – ASE has partnered with Validation Institute to offer the recently-launched Certified Health Value Professional (CHVP) credential, a certification for healthcare benefits practitioners and benefit advisors to demonstrate expertise in health care purchasing. The certification requires professionals to complete training modules that educate them on how to identify and monitor high-value, high-impact programs, and determine whether vendor performance reports and claims are accurate in order to deliver the most value and cost-savings. 


“ASE is very pleased to welcome Validation Institute as our newest partner.  They will bring much value to our members who analyze and purchase benefits and further enhance our training portfolio,” stated ASE President & CEO Mary E. Corrado.


The Certified Health Value Professional program has a dozen, on-demand training modules in key areas of health care benefits management. Each module has been developed by a leading industry expert in that field, and reviewed for comprehensiveness, accuracy and objectivity by two other subject matter experts. The program offers personalization and flexibility, allowing students to select and pass 9 out of 11 classes along with the final written capstone. 


“The Certified Health Value Professional designation is the only one of its kind, created at the request of healthcare purchasers who found themselves facing higher costs and a need to understand why.  We are thrilled to partner with ASE to bring this important education to their community,” said Benny DiCecca, President & CEO, Validation Institute.
