CHA Launches Population Health Webinar Series
Program begins April 28

CHA is offering a new, five-part certification series called Population Health Management (PHM), a comprehensive web-based program that begins April 28 and concludes Oct. 6. The program will provide strategic, business and clinical leaders within hospitals and health systems with the skills, information and implementation tools they need to move forward with PHM. In addition to learning what has worked at other hospitals and organizations, attendees will explore how to address challenges unique to California.

“Population health management is the direction health care is moving. Those who commit early to building the competencies and infrastructure required to advance population health can position or reposition themselves to achieve a sustainable role,” stated Anne McLeod, CHA’s senior vice president, health policy and innovation. “Whether you are already immersed in PHM or just formulating your strategy, this program provides practical, boots-on-the-ground tools. I encourage all hospital leadership teams — from small, rural facilities to large urban hospitals — to consider participating in this program.”

CHA has partnered with management consultants and thought leaders from Kaufmann Hall to develop the curriculum and serve as faculty. Topics include a framework for population health, business imperatives, clinical imperatives, technology requirements, and new competencies in leadership and talent. Participants who complete all five webinars will earn a Certificate in PHM.

In addition to the two-hour webinars, an issue brief will be published in advance of each webinar and provided to registrants. The issue briefs will enhance learning by providing a summary of the topic that can be shared with others within the organization along with additional information, statistics and data.
