Population Health Management Resources

Population health management (PHM) is a holistic concept that aims to keep a patient population as healthy as possible. One of the main goals of PHM is to minimize the need for expensive medical interventions by incentivizing healthcare providers to develop new skill sets and new infrastructures for delivering high-quality care. In many cases, automation makes population health management feasible, scalable, and sustainable.


Should Radiology Be Involved in Population Health?
The question of whether radiology should engage directly with population health is on many people's minds. As medicine transitions from a fee-for-service footing to value-based care, it is incumbent on every physician to weigh the advantages and challenges of this new care delivery model. Learn how radiologists can position themselves to optimize care for patient populations of all backgrounds while saving on costs and strengthening the U.S. healthcare system.
