Population Health Management

What is Population Health Management (PHM)?

Population Health Management is the aggregation and management of patient data across different health information technology resources, the analysis of that data into a longitudinal actionable patient record, and the actions through which care providers can improve both clinical and financial outcomes. The PHM program brings clinical, financial, and operational data together from across the systems, and provides actionable analytics for efficiency and patient care. Care management and gap analysis, risk stratification infrastructure, a cohesive delivery system, and a well-managed partnership network is pivotal for the PHM program.
