Webinar: Population Health: Clinical & Administrative Implications
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: Managing populations while continuing to provide care to the individuals in that population has gained considerable attention of late. Always a focus of attention for epidemiologists, population health has now entered the care delivery world for payers and providers, who must consider how care delivery and clinical decision making must change. Social determinants of health, clinical workflows, care coordination, communications, and interoperability–as well as the omnipresent challenge of nonadherence to clinical regimens—must be taken into consideration if organizations hope to successfully manage populations and people.
In a townhall format, this presentation will explore how these factors interoperate and will provide examples of how organizations have successfully navigated this complex environment. By the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
- Give three examples of how care delivery must change if both population health and individual patient care are to be optimized.
- Describe the current paradoxical state of care delivery in which providers are expected to achieve mutually incompatible goals.
- Describe the critical role that care management, clinical communication, and electronic interoperability must play for successful population management to occur.
