Integrating population health into GME development can address the unique needs of the surrounding community while supporting strategic objectives, improving population health outcomes, gaining access to targeted population data, and providing trainees with an engaging learning environment. With value-based care models becoming the new standard, incorporating population health care delivery models into GME programs is essential for developing the next generation of physicians.

Population Health Strategy
The healthcare system, historically slow to change, has in recent years demonstrated a need for rapid transformation in response to pandemics, regulatory changes, or legislative pressures. With value-based care models becoming the new standard, incorporating population health care delivery models into GME programs is essential for developing the next generation of physicians. It is important to change the way we think about strategic planning and ROI by including patient outcomes, social determinants of health, and other non-financial attributes. Capturing all these inputs paints a holistic picture and allows for the development of a more comprehensive approach as the healthcare and reimbursement landscape changes. Germane Solutions is invested in assisting organizations to make this pivotal turn in healthcare. Germane will assess institutional processes to identify potential opportunities that align the organization’s strategic plans with population health initiatives in their GME programs.
