Course Overview

Healthcare is shifting from a volume-based to a value-based model, and population health initiatives can help organizations transition into this new world of higher-quality, cost-effective care. Population health programs work to improve the health of groups of patients, often focusing on high-risk groups such as those with chronic conditions (e.g., diabetes, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). In the early days of healthcare reform, nurse case managers were identified as having a critical role—together with physicians—in managing effective population health measures. This course will discuss setting goals for a population health program, identifying high-risk patients, working with common elements to improve care for complex patients, and strengthening care through disease-specific, evidence-based practices.
