ABOUT POPULATION HEALTH MANAGEMENT

Population health management is a model that looks beyond those who need immediate medical care by helping physicians to assess their entire patient population and divide it into various groups. These groups often consist of three main categories: those who are healthy and need to stay healthy, those that have health risks, and those with chronic conditions. Healthy individuals are often managed by having them keep up with preventative care measures. Those with health risks often need to change or stop certain behaviors to reduce their risks. And, those with chronic conditions need to prevent further complications by working with their health providers and changing their health behaviors.

The goal of population health management is improving the overall health of an entire population. Treating health at a population level typically means focusing on improving environment, social structure, and resource distribution. Family planning programs, for instance, play a major role in population health and are one of the most highly cost-effective interventions in medicine.
