The second of CHA’s five-part certification series on Population Health Management (PHM) continues June 2 from 9:30 –11:30 a.m., with the webinar Business Imperatives of Population Health Management. Registration remains open for all programs, including the April 28 webinar. Though the initial webinar has been held, it’s easy to catch up by viewing the recorded program.
“The value-driven approach to care delivery and financing under PHM alters the established business fundamentals,” said Anne McLeod, CHA’s senior vice president for health policy and innovation. “Hospital leaders will need to actively manage the transition and the impact on their business. This webinar will help members navigate that process.”
CHA’s five part-certification series on Population Health Management (PHM) kicked off Tuesday with the first webinar, A Framework for PHM. Members who attended responded positively about the program, including:
“Very informative, insightful and visionary. I look forward to the future modules.”
“Excellent overview of PHM!”
“The Issue Brief provided an excellent foundation for the webinar.”
“We now have a better understanding of Population Health.”
“CHA engaged in this work with Kaufman Hall to help California member hospitals strengthen their position in the ever-changing health care delivery system,” said Anne McLeod, CHA’s senior vice president for health policy and innovation. “Population health management is the direction health care is moving as hospitals are challenged to enhance patient care quality, access and experience, while reducing costs.”
CHA’s April 28 webinar on Population Health Management(PHM) will lay the framework for the five-part webinar series presented by a faculty of management consultants and thought leaders from Kaufman, Hall & Associates.
“CHA created this program to provide hospitals with the information and tools needed to move forward with PHM. It is the business challenge and opportunity for tomorrow’s hospitals and health systems, and it is the means to transform health care from a silo-like treatment of services to coordinated care across the continuum,” said Anne McLeod, CHA’s senior vice president, health policy and innovation. “California is at the forefront of this transformation by virtue of its size and unique demographic profile. I encourage all hospitals to consider participating.”
Hospitals can play an important role in reducing the number of uninsured through the Hospital Presumptive Eligibility (HPE) program. The HPE program will allow all hospital Medi-Cal providers — including any clinic on a hospital’s license — to provide potentially-eligible individuals with temporary, full-scope Medi-Cal benefits.
