Population Health Management refers primarily to the identification of groups that need healthcare support, and the coordination of care for improving their outcomes.
When healthcare organizations have a data driven technology plan, they are more easily able to exchange information, identify opportunities in care, and provide timely interventions. This makes for healthier patients as well as a better overall patient experience.
To implement a data driven technology plan, you may want to use software that enables cohort analysis, which finds groups in a population that share similar characteristics. You also may need help with population metrics by using performance scorecards to highlight areas to focus on for immediate attention.
Leveraging all your data resources in order to achieve optimal population health management is not as hard as you think. For more information on how to succeed with population health management, read our trending topics page.
