Next Population Health Webinar Is Tomorrow
Final programs to address technology and leadership considerations

Two webinars remain in CHA’s five-part certification series on Population Health Management (PHM). Member hospitals have offered many positive comments on the series including:

“This webinar series is wonderful with assisting in implementation of a population health program.”

“This series has started to connect the dots for me regarding population health and how to implement it in my facility.”

The next webinar, Technology for Population Health Management, will be held tomorrow from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. (PT). Geared toward health information professionals, the webinar will address key PHM technology capabilities, including care coordination monitoring and tracking; patient-centric disease registries; advanced health analytics, including predictive modeling; enterprise risk management; cost management; and virtual/mobile health.

Participants will also learn the importance of integrating clinical and administrative information, new areas of required technology expertise and how to assess capital requirements for technology investments. Faculty include Pam Arlotto, president and CEO of Maestro Strategies, and Robert W. York, senior vice president of Kaufman, Hall & Associates.

Leadership and Talent for Population Health Management, the final webinar of the series, will describe the role of leadership in fostering key PHM capabilities and introduce new leadership positions – such as chief transformation officer, chief population health officer and chief medical informatics officer – that focus on important facets of the PHM model. In addition, participants will learn new metrics of leadership performance and accountability for a PHM environment. The webinar will be held Oct. 6 from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. (PT), and will be presented by Kaufman Hall staff, including Kenneth Kaufman, chair; Mark E. Grube, managing director; and Matthew J. Lambert III, MD, senior vice president.

CHA has partnered with Kaufman Hall management consultants to develop and present the PHM program. Registration is still open for the full series and individual webinars; participants can catch up by viewing the recorded programs. For more information or to register, visit
