Putting Population Health Strategies into Action

Blog, Population Health

There is no doubt about it: the healthcare operational environment is changing at a rapid pace. National reports are beginning to show a notable shift in patient care from the inpatient environment to a more ambulatory structure. This shift of patient volumes has healthcare providers rethinking how to handle patient engagement when it comes to guiding patients to the most appropriate site of care.

Unfortunately, patient migration of care sites can’t be explained by any one reason. Some of the disruptors can be tied to the rising age of the baby boomer population, millennial healthcare consumerism expectations, reimbursement changes such as bundled payments, innovations in evidence-based care plan innovations, and federal regulatory requirements such as the CMS Quality Payment Program in January 2017.

At Relatient we are focused on assisting healthcare organizations in putting their population health strategies into action to handle the disruptors occurring within their specific market demographic. Relatient believes that no matter where you are with your population health strategy – whether you are just getting started, or you are a robust, predictive data analytics shop – grouping patient populations is just the beginning.
