Population Health Management

A Program for Leaders Ready to Accelerate Progress

While there have been great strides in the journey toward population health management, no one has mastered it yet. Even if you’ve dabbled in risk contracts and feel that a positive transformation is under way, you’re only part way there. To make real progress, you must implement new strategies and draw on data and
reporting to make better leadership decisions — the kind that lead to greater cost-savings and improvements in the care your organization provides.

Is your organization positioned to realize game-changing outcomes? To ensure you’re on the right track, join other senior health care leaders for IHI’s Population Management Executive Program on April 27–29, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. Together, working with industry peers and thought leaders from IHI, you’ll accelerate efforts to improve care and outcomes for your patient population, all while achieving financial vitality and ensuring sustainability.

What You’ll Learn

This intensive program will help you learn techniques for implementing the Five Accelerators for Population Health Management, including:
  • Providing leadership for shaping culture and mitigating barriers
  • Building data systems for timely, accurate, and actionable information
  • Engaging clinicians, patients, and community partners
  • Determining payment models that best align with your organization
  • Ensuring the creation of a learning system that equips staff with improvement skills to make positive changes.
During the two-and-a-half day program, you’ll hear real world lessons from a diverse set of organizations that are delivering or supporting population-based care. You’ll also have the chance to learn from other participants, who are facing similar challenges, as they work to transform care.
Come prepared to widen your lens, embrace new strategies, and actively collaborate with your team. Leave with a step-by-step action plan for effectively managing your defined population.
