The Foundations of Success in Population Health Management


From hospital systems to large employers, organizations are increasingly taking on financial risk for the health of populations. Drivers of this trend include the update to the MSSP model, the recent CMS Primary Cares Initiative announcement, the increasing prevalence of the Medicare Advantage model, innovative partnerships in the self-insured employer space, and the proliferation of Medicaid ACOs. Yet while market pressures push organizations toward population risk, they don't necessarily help them succeed: most organizations are struggling to attain or sustain the dual imperatives of high-quality care and cost containment. A primary reason? Short-sighted and tactical approaches that don't provide the flexible data infrastructure and tools to adapt to emerging trends in population health—or to support short-term contractual requirements while building toward long-term success.

Wednesday, June 12
2:00-2:45 PM ET

Join us in this launch webinar to learn about Health Catalyst’s Population Health Foundations solution, a data and analytics-first starter set aimed at optimizing performance in value-based risk arrangements and providing the data ecosystem that will flex and adapt to complex needs of risk-bearing organizations. Solution services ensure that the strategic value of data is maximized to improve performance in risk contracts—and provide side-by-side subject matter expert partnership for establishing short- and long-term goals for population health management (PHM).

Built on Health Catalyst’s foundational technology and supported by the nationwide experience and perspective of its experts, the Population Health Foundations solution helps organizations leverage multiple data sources to understand their patient populations and create meaningful views of financial and clinical quality performance. As a starter set that organizations can build on based on their needs, the solution is designed to compensate for the known limitations of “black box” population health applications that fail to reveal the “why” of analytic insights and exacerbate the challenges of transforming quality, cost, and care. The Population Health Foundations solution delivers the essential analytic tools needed for success under value-based risk arrangements:

  • Unified claims and clinical data
  • Transparent tools for ad hoc analysis
  • Web-based patient stratification and registry building
  • Dashboard of quality and financial performance metrics
  • A flexible, enabling analytics starter set upon which additional Health Catalyst PHM tools can be integrated and added
  • Side-by-side partnership with population health experts

In this webinar you can expect to:

  • Review recent changes to the field of value-based care, and reactions and insights from the market
  • Discover how the Population Health Foundations solution can act as a comprehensive, data-first analytics solution to support your population stratification and monitoring needs
  • Understand how this solution functions as a foundational starter set for value-based care success, enabling clients to leverage all their data and other relevant population health tools
  • Access a first-reveal of the Population Health Foundations solution demo, which presents the solution through the lens of an at-risk population and contract

We hope that you will join us.
