Population Health: Leveraging Your Current Healthcare Infrastructure to Accelerate Transformation

Life Sciences, Healthcare, Commercialization & HEOR, Digital Health,
  • Monday, June 19, 2023

Leading approaches for population health provide a conceptual framework to help understand why some people are healthier than others and how to structure interventions for individuals and groups. How can providers and payors accelerate their population health transformation when facing increasing costs, an overburdened workforce, and the imperative for more equitable care?

Join the featured speakers as they discuss how one hospital system took a project designed to address pandemic surge response and turned it into a platform for addressing significant health inequities.

In this webinar, attendees will learn how to leverage their current healthcare infrastructure- people, data, and technology to improve population health, advance value-based care, and accelerate progress on health equity.
