Healthcare's value-based purchasing increasingly favors a population-centric approach to health management, identifying risk across the care continuum. To control costs, healthcare organizations and employers are turning to population health management, defined as the management of integration and outcome measurements of any program affecting the health and productivity of a specific population or group.
2012 Healthcare Benchmarks: Population Health Management delivers an in-depth analysis of population health management (PHM) trends, including prevalence of PHM initiatives, program components, professionals on the PHM team, incentives, challenges and ROI.
This resource analyzes the responses of 102 healthcare organizations to HIN's industry survey on PHM trends, administered in September 2012. It delivers the latest metrics and measures on current and planned PHM initiatives, providing actionable data on the most effective PHM tools and workflows, risk identification strategies, tools to boost health plan member and consumer engagement, modalities for program delivery, and much, much more.
This 50-page report is designed to meet business and planning needs of health plans, employers, managed care organizations, health systems and others by providing critical benchmarks in population health management.
2012 Healthcare Benchmarks: Population Health Management also takes a look inside the population health management program at Bon Secours Health System.
