At the Institute for Advancing Health Value, we believe the key enabler for the future of our industry is workforce readiness to deliver on the promise of high value, high quality care that delivers equitable outcomes for all. Health system CEOs agree, as illustrated in the recent 2022 Health Systems’ Climate Study confirming that 90% of CEOs are prioritizing upskilling their existing workforce to better serve diverse patient needs. 

In partnership with the College of Health Professions at Western Governors University (WGU), the Institute, has developed competency-based certificate programs in Value-Based Care and Population Health Equity to meet the needs for value transformation. This curriculum was developed by industry experts to prepare you to succeed in the future of care delivery – one that is patient-centered, relationship-based, and technology-enables.  

Those who complete either of these programs will be bestowed the prestigious designation of Merkin Scholar, named in honor of Dr. Richard Merkin. To learn more about this early pioneer in the value movement, please click here
