55 – How to Operationalize and Contract for Population Health

Tuesday, March 24th

About the Session

This session will be held at the Swissôtel Chicago; includes a 15-minute break.

This seminar will explore the mandate for a clinical delivery business model redesign focusing on population health. Faculty will discuss why the healthcare industry must move from a volume-based hospital and physician practice “sickness” model to a systemwide healthcare model based on optimizing the care of subpopulations within a population of covered lives. You will review the key operational components of population health and learn how to develop and manage programs in clinical engagement and alignment, clinical integration, palliative care, disease management, post-acute care, retail medicine and e-health, which are all necessary to build a population health infrastructure. In addition, faculty will discuss how organizations can stage the transition from fee-for-service to a risk-based capitation population health model that manages covered lives based on the optimization of clinical and business outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how a population health approach can optimize clinical and business outcomes by focusing on the care of subpopulations of defined covered lives.
  • Discover how to operationalize and contract for population health services through the creation of a population health infrastructure and at-risk contracts.
