Unlike few can do, Dr. David Burton has simplified these complex topics into a simple construct of four population health management building blocks. By acquiring proficiency in each of these four dimensions, healthcare delivery systems can create an asset which can be marketed to various types of governmental and commercial payers, which sponsor health benefit plans and offer shared accountability contracts (i.e. accountable care) into which these population health management sponsors can enter.
The key learning points of the webinar include:
The four building blocks of population health management (provider network, population(s), quality/safety outcomes, and cost outcomes)
The central role patient registries play in success in population health management
Pragmatic tools and methodologies to help healthcare delivery systems become proficient in each of the four dimensions of the framework
A discussion of the categories of governmental and commercial sponsors of shared accountability solutions, including the potential impact of the shift from defined benefit to defined contribution health benefit programs
