UNIVERSAL VALUE SYSTEM (UVS)
We have developed a universal value system (UVS) that comprises of one (1) Core Value (CV), and seven (7) Core Principles (CPs). The UVS is the summarized expression of the one thing that is most important to our Firm (our CV or ultimate accomplishment: improved quality of life), and the other most important principles that we focus on to make the CV become a reality (our seven CPs: Efficacy, Evidence Based, Integrity, Peace of Mind, Quality, Service, and Value). In our UVS, the CV is illustrated as our center (sun) and placed in the middle, and the CPs (planets) encircle the CV.

CORE VALUE (CV): Improved quality of Life

CORE PRINCIPLES (CPs):  
Efficacy, Evidence Based, Integrity, Peace of Mind, Quality, Service, and Value. These CPs are not listed in order or priority, but rather alphabetically. Since they are thought about (conceptualized) and made real (operationalized) as part of a circle of completeness, they all are equally important and the importance of each one is conditioned by its connection with the others in the action.
