Pathways to Population Health (P2PH) is an initiative that has identified four portfolios of work health care organizations can undertake to accelerate their progress in improving health, well-being, and equity.
Organizations can use these P2PH resources to jump start or accelerate their efforts to improve population health.
Pathways to Population Health Framework
The Pathways to Population Health Framework presents four portfolios of population health that offer health care organizations a simple way to organize their work in service of ultimately achieving a balance over time for greatest impact.
This resource includes:
- Foundational concepts and a common language (the WHY)
- Four interconnected portfolios of population health (the WHAT)
- Levers for implementation to accelerate progress within and across the portfolios (the HOW)
