The population health management program for Kaiser Permanente Colorado, serving over 600,000 patients, has evolved through many iterations over a period of nearly 20 years. The program is moving from "Population Health Management" to "Personalized Health Management," considering the whole patient. The initial implementation of prevention and chronic disease management has developed into a coordinated team based care ecosystem enabled by technology that meets information needs and has an individual's care needs identified to all treating clinicians; clinical governance ensures best practices are implemented in systems and the data used in clinical informatics have greatly expanded beyond the EMR. As well, patients have online access to their "Personalized Health Management" status.


Key takeaways

  • Recognize that Population Health Management is actually Personalized Health Management.
  • Understand the key foundations of a successful, large scale PHM program.
  • Importance of employing technology and data to provide valuable assistance to care team members.
