About the Purchaser Value Network (PVN)

PVN is a network of and for purchasers that aims to accelerate the adoption of high value healthcare delivery and payment models through policy advocacy, education and purchaser engagement.

The network seeks to:
  • Inject purchaser perspectives and innovative best practices into federal and state policy decision making
  • Educate employers about value-based purchasing and advocacy opportunities
  • Align the three critical purchaser sectors—private employers, states, and the federal government—around evidence-based practices
Advisory Committee Members

Our Advisory Board members provide counsel on PVN's strategic direction and assist in promoting purchaser involvement in the network. If you are an employer that has implemented effective value-based purchasing strategies and are interested in sharing best practices with other employers and/or joining our Advisory Committee, please contact us.


Our Partners provide input and feedback on PVN's projects and assist in identifying real-world best practices to be shared through the network. Partners benefit from opportunities to co-host events and co-brand materials with PVN and receive individualized support by PVN staff in designing and implementing value-based payment models in their communities. If you are interested in becoming a PVN partner, please contact us.
