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.
Because it’s not just simply a “hot topic” and an industry buzz phrase. You need to know how your patients are doing in terms of the health issues that place them in specific groupings based on those health issues. Then, you’ll want to create evidenced-based care plans for you patient groups based on their conditions, keeping in mind it’s especially critical for identifying high risk patients, and to provide that care on a timely basis.
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 MedicsCloud EHR is ideal for Pop Health reporting.
