Quality-Driven Healthcare: Finding Opportunity for Population Health Management in Your Practice

Healthy Hearts in the Heartland (H3) and the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN) are pleased to welcome Christine Rash-Foanio, PharmD, BCACP, for a webinar titled, “Quality-Driven Healthcare: Finding Opportunity for Population Health Management in Your Practice.”

In the webinar, Dr. Rash-Foanio will focus on why physicians may want to consider implementing population health management strategies in their practices. For many, the transition from caring for patients on an individual basis to managing them on a patient population level can be challenging. However, population health management strategies have been shown to improve health outcomes, as well as overall efficiency of care. This webinar will help participants increase understanding of how to implement population health management strategies in practice, and troubleshoot barriers to doing so. A Q&A session will follow the webinar.

Target Audience: This webinar is designed for physicians and other healthcare professionals.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Describe a value-based clinical service model for diabetes care within a primary care setting.
  • Apply the value-based clinical service model to patient populations with other chronic conditions.
  • Identify strategies to develop metrics for measuring the success of a value-based service model.
  • Recognize current and potential challenges in achieving continued success in a value-based service model.
