NAHQ14_MarquisImgs_CPHQWhy earn the CPHQ? 

As healthcare continues to evolve, more and more staff in healthcare organizations will be involved in quality. That's why it is more important than ever before to differentiate yourself as a healthcare quality professional with the Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality® (CPHQ) certification.

As a healthcare quality professional, you bring together data analytics, performance improvement, risk management, patient safety and much more, helping others see the bigger picture.

Prove that commitment by earning your CPHQ credential.
