First Population Health Management Webinar Lays the Framework for Series
Program begins April 28; includes extensive issue brief

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.”

The two-hour webinar will set the foundation for the webinar series. Topics include the five drivers of PHM; the definition of PHM; key competencies; California’s delegated risk models; clinical and business components of effective care management; provider roles; the framework for the pursuit of PHM; and implications for California hospitals and health systems.

In addition to the webinars, registrants will receive a comprehensive issue brief prior to each webinar. The attached excerpt from the 18-page Issue Brief 1 provides the five drivers of the PHM imperative and defines PHM.

The issue briefs were written to enhance learning within member hospitals by providing a summary of the topic that can be shared with others within the organization.
