Cracking The Code On Population Health

Webinar: September 19, 2018, at 2:00 pm EST
Through technology, services, science and innovation you can improve lives, clinical quality and master disease management. Population Health can aggressively fulfill the under-met clinical needs that are happening with patients and improve outcomes through Chronic Care Management (CCM), Behavioral Health Integration (BHI), and Transitional Care Management (TCM) programs. Identifying issues is the first step to developing a strategy to create a successful care management program. Join us for this webinar for FQHCs to discover the essential steps to this process.

About The Webinar

To develop a sustainable population health approach, you need to think about 3 things: Quality, Access, and Affordability. What is the under-met need that you need to address? Creating meaningful interactions during and between office visits and designing treatments very specific to each patient will only impact their health outcomes and increase patient engagement.

This webinar covers the following:

  • Transitioning to a true population approach to care
  • Ways to develop a realistic and measurable strategy to reach your organization’s clinical goals
  • Optimizing your limited resources to enhance efficiency
  • Finding support for FQHCs in the areas of Population Health, Disease Management and Patient Engagement
