Feeley D. Leading Improvement in Population Health. Healthcare Executive. 2014 May/June;29(3):82-85.
Focusing on population health requires us to think differently about leadership. So, what skills and competencies do future leaders require? The IHI white paper, High-Impact Leadership: Improve Care, Improve the Health of Populations, and Reduce Costs, presents new mental models and a set of high-impact behaviors to optimize the difference leaders can
make in the era of the Triple Aim.
The new mental models for leading population health require leaders to blend the best of their capability to manage health care delivery performance and quality improvement with a set of skills that are about co-production — that is, forming productive relationships with community partners and with patients,
families, and the broader population.
