POP HEALTH FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - April 3 - 4, 2017
In the U.S., the burden of chronic disease affects over one-third of adults and accounts for 75 percent of U.S. aggregate healthcare spending, according to the Centers for Disease Control. In order to manage the health of the population of those with chronic diseases, healthcare organizations will need to determine how to acquire, manage, and analyze data to improve quality of care, health outcomes, and reduce unnecessary healthcare costs for this population. This presentation will provide an overview of the importance of these processes in managing population health for patients with chronic diseases. It will provide strategies on how organizations can help build and develop specific competencies and skills of healthcare managers, clinicians and staff for more effective utilization of resources in managing population health and to improve patient outcomes for those with chronic diseases.
