Defining the Scope of Population Health Management: Session VII, Thought Leaders in Population Health Webinar Speaker Series


The term Population Health Management (PHM) is referred to in several health care reform initiatives. Although the understanding of this term differs among professionals and other healthcare stakeholders, we could see this phrase as a call to action for collaboration in working together to improve health outcomes in the communities we serve. This webinar will focus on what Population Health Management covers and what it does not. Without a doubt PHM initiatives are becoming a key centerpiece to many care coordination programs that support the management of the chronically ill and other high cost patients. This presentation will discuss what the PHM opportunities are and what challenges still remain. Key questions covered include:

  • What are the key elements of PHM programs?
  • How do care coordination strategies interface with PHM initiatives? (e.g., transitions of care, medical home, accountable care organizations and other activities)
  • What are the opportunities and challenges associated with population health driven programs?
  • What are the future opportunities to optimize PHM and care coordination programs?
