Close Care Gaps with Population Health Management

Population health management has become a critical element in today’s delivery of healthcare. The goal of managing health populations is to close gaps in the care process and deliver the best care possible at the most appropriate cost levels. In order to accomplish this complex task, a technology platform is needed that can continuously classify patients into risk groups, prioritize their care delivery and identify and close gaps in care across the health population.

This technology platform must be leveraged by high-performance care teams to improve workflow, drive patient engagement and integrate actionable insights into the delivery process that lead to the improved quality of care.

A population health management platform must address the triple aim of improving quality/outcomes, increasing patient engagement and lowering the cost of care.  This can be accomplished by integrating, synchronizing and standardizing multiple data sources into a powerful database that provides information across the entire continuum of care. This type of database provides access to both clinical and claims data, creating an integration of cost and quality that allows users to focus on the value and efficiency of care rather than utilization.

The healthcare analytics produced by this database platform combine population health insights with point of care data management tools to provide an unprecedented view of the overall patient population while identifying specific gaps in care for individual patients.

By utilizing a powerful predictive algorithm, population health management technologies can effectively identify and manage high-risk patients, improving the overall quality and financial performance for any healthcare provider.

As healthcare transitions from a volume to a value-based model, population health management platforms can provide the insight, actionable data, risk stratification and proactive care management tools that are needed to deliver care in this new value-based environment.

Incorporating a health population management platform into your daily workflow will provide critical actionable data, empowering care managers to monitor overall population health, while proactively improving quality by closing gaps in care for individual patients.
