What is Population Health?
Population health in the broadest sense addresses the large-scale social, economic, and environmental issues that impact health outcomes of groups of people. Population health can also be defined more narrowly as specific interventions to address the health needs of attributed and discretely defined subpopulations.
When applied to health care delivery, population health differs from conventional health care by emphasizing value rather than volume of services rendered.
How do you keep the world healthy?
By learning to use the tools you have to find answers you need; combining public policy, evidence-based public health strategies, population data, and clinical expertise with on the ground insight and economic analysis to help find answers that will reinvent the system.
