Population Health Strategy

The healthcare system has demonstrated a need for rapid transformation following pandemics, regulatory changes, and legislative pressures. With value-based care models becoming the new standard, incorporating population healthcare delivery models into GME programs is imperative for developing the next generation of physicians. It is vital to evolve how we view strategic planning and ROI by including patient outcomes, social determinants of health, and other non-financial attributes. Capturing these inputs paints a holistic picture and allows for a more comprehensive approach as the healthcare and reimbursement landscape changes. We are invested in assisting your organization in making this pivotal turn, and we assess institutional processes to identify potential opportunities that align your organization’s strategic plans with population health initiatives in their GME programs.
