About this IHI Virtual Expedition

While health care organizations are committed to improving the health, wellbeing, and equity of their communities, many struggle to identify effective strategies and methods to meet their goals.

  • Assess the status of your health care organization on the journey to
    population health
  • Identify key opportunities to improve health, well-being, and equity in partnership with patients and community-based organizations

  • Use the Pathways to Population Health Framework, tools, and resources
  • Use the Compass Assessment Tool to guide your organization's strengths and opportunities around Population Health Management
