Cumberland: Navigating the Population Health Management Software Vendor Landscape

This white paper is focused on the rapidly evolving field of Population Health Management (PHM), and the substantial information technology (IT) solutions that it will require. Termed “hot and evolving” by KLAS, this category of software solutions embodies many of the buzzwords we’ve been hearing for the past year (i.e., Business Intelligence, Analytics, Big Data, etc.), and represents the Jaws 2 to EHR’s Jaws as providers continue to attempt to keep pace with emerging regulatory and reimbursement changes. Indeed a number of parallels can be drawn between the EHR marketplace of 5-7 years ago and today’s emerging PHM vendor landscape, and as in the past, the seas are rough and full of danger.
