America South – Fourth Floor

Value-based payment models, leveraging population health management to proactively identify gaps in care as a way to improve quality while reducing costs are important for self-insured systems. But knowing where to start is half the battle. Covenant Health Systems, a self-insured not-for-profit health system based in New England, adopted a population health management program to track and manage the health of their employees across three hospitals and affiliated facilities. The health system leveraged data and analytics to strategically identify at-risk patients and proactively manage their care. Covenant Health Systems will discuss the implementation of their employee population health program as a building block for a larger population health program and share results and surprising findings.


Key takeaways

  • Identify the importance of engagement/communication with all stakeholders around the urgency behind a population health program.
  • Explain the critical need to implement a care coordination team that supports the success of the program.
  • Discuss how analysis of claims data, such as pharmaceutical, can provide insight into what causes increased expenditures.
