CHA Podcast Series Discusses Clinical, Business Competencies for Population Health Management

CHA has developed weekly installments, including podcasts and one-page Snapshots, addressing a broad range of topics related to population health management (PHM) — an approach to managing the health of a specific population while improving quality and controlling costs.

Following up on last week’s segment, which addressed the nine key competencies of population health management, this week’s installment delves into the clinical and business components necessary for success. The attached Snapshot, titled Comprehensive Care Management – Clinical and Business Competencies, explains that business components include delivery network management and operations, business intelligence and actuarial services, and contracting arrangements. Those areas must be addressed in partnership with clinical components — such as use of evidence-based practices, claims and medical record management, and analysis — to achieve the comprehensive care management required to meet population health management goals.

As hospital leaders respond to today’s changing health care environment, these key components of population health management will help them develop their unique paths forward. CHA’s PHM Snapshot series is intended to ensure members have the tools they need as they assume more responsibility in transforming how care is delivered, coordinated and paid for. More information about PHM, along with previous podcasts and resources, is available on CHA’s dedicated web page.
