Population & Community Health in the Era of Value-Based Care

As health care organizations take on more responsibility for the health of the populations they serve, providers are grappling with a host of questions. How do you best assemble teams for integrated care? How do you maintain contact with patients after they are discharged? How do you establish collaborative relationships within the community to provide the support patients need? Most of all, how do you prevent unnecessary readmissions?

These questions – and others – point to the need for major shifts in the way post-acute care is delivered. Implications abound – related to patient relationships, workforce, culture, data integration, cost control, physician education, and many other issues.

We are joining forces with them to further the conversation about how providers can be successfully manage population health as the landscape shifts.
