Population health management (PHM) is a journey that requires a sound strategy, solid IT and data infrastructure and a clear understanding of continuous quality improvement efforts in order to make a significant and lasting impact on patients and communities. Increased provider-payer collaboration can have a lasting and positive impact on improving patient and population outcomes. The principles of population health management and their supporting technologies can help ease this shift to value-based care. They align the metrics, incentives, and interventions that guide decision-making for healthcare networks, clinicians, and patients. A population health framework supports collaboration among payers, providers, and community partners—a critical component to developing a program that can be implemented at scale and sustained over time. Attendees will learn how to optimize their provider-payer relationships in order to transform their current population health management strategy and achieve the best results possible during their transition to value-based care.
