"I gain value in being a member of AHRMM in three ways. First, the networking amongst peers who have had similar successes and failures, offers me the ability to learn from my colleague's experiences. Second, access to leading edge work provided by the AHRMM Committees and Task Forces saves significant time in researching where the industry is going. And, third, the continuing education and certification opportunities provide an easy and affordable way to continue my personal and professional development."

Join the Movement. Join AHRMM.
The healthcare landscape is changing and supply chain needs to adapt in a critical way by taking ownership of the intersection of Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO). The CQO Movement outlines how healthcare supply chain professionals can improve the quality and affordability of healthcare. The best way to stay on top of the challenges, changes, and resources available is to become a member of AHRMM. Along with the CQO Movement, AHRMM member benefits provide you with the essential tools you need to excel in the field. Membership provides the education, professional information, support, career planning tools, networking, and resources you need − all from one reliable source.
Join AHRMM today. Together we can shape the future of the healthcare supply chain through the Cost, Quality, and Outcomes Movement.
CQO Movement Overview
The AHRMM Cost, Quality, and Outomes (CQO) Movement refers to a more holistic view of the correlation between cost (supplies, procedures, services), quality (patient care and services provided, patient satisfaction, quality of care), and outcomes (financial reimbursement driven by outstanding clinical care at the appropriate costs) as opposed to viewing each independently. AHRMM has developed a first-of-its-kind training and educational framework to support the CQO Movement and equip supply chain professionals with the skills and expertise they will need to master the intersection of cost, quality, and outcomes.
