Effective population health management (PHM) requires strategies to reach the individual consumer or patient at all stages of life in the manner most appropriate for each individual. PHM must use a set of patterns of population health strategies that describe people and their preferences. These pattern classifications help healthcare organizations begin to understand how they should develop a robust PHM that serves the population needs.
Each market and population is unique. Market position, service offerings, health status, predominant diseases, and geographic and community features are all unique factors that need to be addressed. As your healthcare system gains a greater understanding of their local population needs, the PHM program you are implementing needs to develop criteria that will be assigned to specific population cohorts to define the various proactive health interventions and care delivery.
Write an executive summary that analyzes the various patterns of population health management that your health system is developing for your diverse population.
