Population Health is an ability to group patients by their conditions, severity of illness, demographics, or other parameters to identify risk levels, then be able to address those health issues, and better leverage resources leading to improved care.
Pop Health identifies and flags problem areas and high-risk patients and helps document how well treatments or therapies are or aren’t working for the segment of the population being monitored. Overall, pop health should also reduce cost of care. Part of population health includes conducting preventive care outreach.
ACOs, which are becoming more and more popular, almost universally require its members to be able to manage and report on pop health.
Pop Health requires an EHR that can be used to report on segments of the practice’s patients, and on outcomes relative to treatments and therapies. The Medics EHR from ADS is ideal for Pop Health reporting.
