POP HEALTH FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Chicago, IL - October 2 - 3, 2017
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.
