What is Population Health and How Does it Compare to Public Health?

The shift from volume-based to value-based purchasing and the emergence of accountable care organizations are creating a focus on comprehensive management of the health and well-being of patient populations. This doesn’t mean that individual patient care processes are unimportant or unnecessary. It does mean that healthcare systems need to improve both individual patient care processes, while at the same time learning how to manage the entire population of patients they serve. Learn more about population health management and how it is interrelated, but different than public health.

Why the 21st Century Cures Act Is Great News for Healthcare

The 21st Century Cures Act, approved by the U.S. Senate on December 7, 2016, is perhaps the most significant federal legislation as it relates to health information technology (HIT) in years. What the Cures Act means for HIT companies and providers is two key things:

  1. Health information interoperability will be strongly promoted (involves the development of a “trusted exchange framework” which is expected to facilitate the exchange of health information nationally and locally).
  2. Information blocking practices will be strongly prohibited (e.g., Implementing HIT in nonstandard ways likely to increase the complexity or burden of accessing, exchanging, or using electronic health information—with fines as much as $1,000,000).
The Act’s impact on the healthcare industry is monumental, with significantly improved provider access to clinical, financial, and operational data to improve outcomes. The Act’s provisions to promote the free exchange of health information will improve care coordination industrywide.

Interoperability in Healthcare Delivers Critical Health Information at the Point of Care

Interoperability in healthcare, despite frequent objections by EHR vendors and health systems (e.g. “EHR integration is too difficult to manage”), is integral to delivering high quality patient care. Interoperability means different things to different health system stakeholders, from leaders seeing it as a purchase they must defend, to clinicians relying on it to get the information they need, when they need it. But it boils down to delivering the highest-quality, most effective, and most efficient care to patients—a goal that’s easier to define than achieve. One of interoperability’s most important use cases, EHR integration, is challenged by EHR vendors and health systems worried about integration challenges, from HIT vendors wanting to integrate too many tools, to EHR access fears. Fortunately, objections are dissipating with the introduction of national interoperability policy and better cooperation among industry participants. Amidst these distractions, health systems need to regain focus on interoperability’s top goal: improving patient care by making the best information available at the point of care.
