Population Health Management: Data Alone Is Not Enough
Thanks to the value-based care movement, healthcare experts have come to realize that treating the whole person is the key to improving health outcomes and reducing costs. As a result, greater attention has been given to providing holistic care across all phases of the patient journey.
To drive quality improvements, effective population health management programs rely on feedback loops that analyze current data. Integrated PHM initiatives are the best way to obtain that timely and actionable information about members and patients.
All too many organizations, however, attempt to manage population health using a patchwork of different applications that weren’t designed for interoperability.
Without an integrated PHM solution, organizations find it difficult to offer a unified customer experience.
While data is an essential ingredient for population health management, the importance of integrated and interoperable systems can’t be overlooked.
