Population Health Management
Driven by unsustainable costs and mediocre health outcomes, the nation is moving toward new payment models that create incentives for improved care. Data and analytics have emerged as a critical part of the toolset that healthcare organizations need to adapt and thrive, and this handbook focuses on how to embed such tools in the context of an overarching population health effort.
This handbook aims to provide practical and flexible guidance for your organization’s journey toward population health management, with a specific focus on the analytics to support this effort. We believe—and have seen among our client partners—that when financial, clinical, analytic, and operational leaders work in an aligned way, they can succeed in achieving the promise of population health management: better care at lower costs, a stronger organization, and a healthier community.
