Primary Target Audience: Public health professionals working a variety of public health settings including all levels of governmental public health, nonprofit organizations, healthcare and academia.
Population Health is the term du jour in healthcare. The session will explore the operational approach driving the most recent evolution in clinical care contrasted with recent trends in public health. Tenets of population health including the transition from volume pricing to value based payments and how this impacts the delivery of care will be covered. The evolving public health issues and financing of public good programs contrast with the medical delivery system in the U.S. The evaluation of population health performance includes a mix of conventional and new measures. These discussions summarize the tension and contrast for innovative approaches to public health vs. population health as the latest in a series of experiments to dampen the medical inflation and long term condition increases in prevalence within the U.S. economy.
