King of Prussia, PA, July 24, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Many hospitals and health systems have shifted their focus from treating patients who need immediate care to improving the overall health of their community. This model, known as population health management (PHM), not only produces better outcomes, but it also helps healthcare organizations deliver higher quality care and increase profitability.
While the benefits of population health management are clear, implementation is anything but. There are countless strategies and solutions to consider, and success rates for each one vary from facility to facility.
To help healthcare executives and professionals navigate the most successful population health management strategies currently being used, ADVANCE Events will host an online conference on September 10, 2014, entitled A Roadmap for Population Health Management. All healthcare professionals are welcome to register for free here: http://j.mp/PopHealth2014.
This free event will feature in-depth discussions with some of the leading minds in PHM, including David Nash, MD, MBA, who will serve as the keynote speaker. His session, Population Health: Is It the Secret Sauce?, will focus on population health in the context of the system's transformation away from traditional fee-for-service and towards outcomes-driven, value-based healthcare.
Dr. Nash was named the Founding Dean of the Jefferson School of Population Health in 2008. This appointment capped a 20-year tenure on the faculty of Thomas Jefferson University. He is also a board-certified, internationally recognized internist and Editor-in-Chief of four major national journals, including Population Health Management, American Journal of Medical Quality, P&T, and American Health and Drug Benefits.
In total, there will be five exclusive webinars held from 11:00am - 6:00pm ET. Three of the sessions will be provided by URAC and will be eligible for CE credit. An exhibit hall will also be open from 12:00pm - 5:00pm ET, where attendees can chat with vendors, get answers to their PHM questions and gather information on a variety of solutions.
