The attention on population health is growing rapidly. The goal of population health initiatives is to protect and promote health for all individuals in a population. At the center of population health is the data needed to understand, measure, and explore the current state and predict the future state of the health of a population. To fully realize the health of a population, analytical methods are adopted to visualize and describe health metrics and trends. The stewards of healthcare data are HIM professionals. In this capacity, HIM professionals are essential to capturing quality data, reporting the data, and analyzing that data to develop organizational insights and strategies for improving the health of the population. This webinar will offer information on the goal of population health, data sources that can be leveraged, analytical methods to support evaluation, and the role of HIM with these initiatives. At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will have a better understanding on how they can use data to effectively support population health efforts.
- Articulate how data can be used to improve the health of a population
- Assess the role of HIM in population health initiatives
- Review data sources and analytical methods that support population health efforts
