Advanced Population Health Management Meeting Patient Needs Across the Continuum of Acuity

By: Cynthia BurghardResearch Director, Value-based Healthcare IT Transformation Strategies

Abstract

This IDC Market Perspective discusses how advanced population health management meets patient needs across the continuum of acuity. Population health management has focused its efforts primarily on closing gaps in care, which results in both clinical and financial improvement. The next generation of population health must provide services to patients across a broader spectrum of acuity and location of care. Healthcare organizations must begin to develop and execute strategies to incorporate digital technology for monitoring and communicating with patients and must begin to establish a network of community services to develop an integrated approach to patient management.

"The time has come for healthcare to move outside institutional walls and meet patient where and when they need care. To accomplish this goal, the adoption of digital technology and social, human, and behavioral health services must be provided. Reimbursement policy is changing to support this change, and the availability and adoption of digital technology is growing," says Cynthia Burghard, research director, IDC Health Insights.
