Improving Population Health Management: Optimizing Care Across the Continuum

Join ECG’s Charles Brown at the BRI Network conference workshop in San Diego as he discusses how to improve population health management by optimizing care across the continuum.

With disparities across communities and care, reaching populations at scale creates new challenges. To meaningfully impact health outcomes, providers, payers, hospitals, and health systems need access to healthcare analytics, trends, and information—easily, fully, and instantly. Despite the rise of medical innovations and technology, strains across the care ecosystem can jeopardize population health progress. Disparities create gaps in care that are difficult to solve with limited clinical staff and resources.

These challenges link back to concerns of standardization and scale—and may negatively impact health outcomes and other measures like hospital readmission rates, clinical errors, costs, and length of stay. As hospitals navigate these and other complexities of population health, they’ll need to keep up with the latest clinical evidence and trends.

Extracting insights from data—especially those tied to social determinants of health—can translate into changes in policy, programs, and practice that meaningfully improve and scale care models. The ability to analyze health data across populations can inform quality improvement priorities and research projects to enhance health outcomes and patient experiences.
