Earlier this week, we stumbled across an article suggesting that perhaps population health does not dive deep enough to be meaningful on an individual level. This sparked an introspective look into the role population health management plays, and how, in fact, the principles that guide this approach are firmly centered around the individual patient. Population health management has evolved over the years to continuously create new innovations and develop measures to improve the health status of individuals across various populations. There are many definitions, but to me, population health management is about the collective actions of a group of providers to care for a defined population with the goal of helping each member of that population achieve the best health possible. The goal is about individuals, not populations.
