Abstract

Population health management (PHM) is a data-driven integrated healthcare delivery model that provides individualized care plans to populations based on health risks and conditions. PHM uses data aggregation, risk stratification, and analytics to design and monitor the effectiveness of treatments and interventions tailored to individual health profiles. The PHM model requires functional integration to deliver coordinated care, clinical integration of providers, and advanced health information capabilities to risk stratify and manage the population for quality outcomes. Investments are needed in core components to include information technology, care management programs, a primary care network of providers with same-day access, and patient-engagement tools such as health apps or home health monitoring devices. Population health management programs have captured the interest of the healthcare community with a focus on lowering health risks and improving clinical outcomes at a lower cost.
