8:00am – 8:15am
Chairperson’s Opening Remarks

8:15am – 9:00am
The Progressive Journey Toward Population Health Management
The changes underway in the U.S. healthcare system constitute a major shift in our national care delivery model. Healthcare providers are making further progress transitioning from a fee-for-service approach to one based on value. Organizations are orienting around the Triple Aim to achieve the end goal: better quality for more people at an affordable cost. Hospitals and health systems are searching for effective and feasible ways to improve the outcomes and the satisfaction of their individual patients, while managing the overall health of the population more effectively and reducing the unnecessary costs inherent in the health care system. Opportunities to improve and engage in best practices are plentiful, regardless of the stage of adoption at which a healthcare provider is in their population health journey. However, where to begin and how to best ensure changes are impactful, executable and sustainable are the ongoing questions providers struggle to answer. This session will explore key areas of focus for hospitals and health systems that want to accelerate organizational adoption of a population health model, including the necessary information infrastructure.

9:00am – 9:45am
Applying a Population Health Equity Framework in the Clinical Setting
Nationally, there is increasing recognition to shift away from a paradigm of reducing health disparities in vulnerable populations to one of advancing population health equity for all. This framework is founded on a social determinants of health approach, which emphasizes the critical impact of the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age and the broader range of forces and systems that shape daily life, health and well-being. This session will explore establishing new methods to achieve routine analysis of patient-level factors within the context of community-level determinants to further advance a population health equity framework within the clinical setting.

10:15am – 11:00am
The Relationship Between Population Health Management and Social Determinants of Health
Population health depends on the ability of providers, payers and other stakeholders to understand the clinical and socioeconomic factors influencing and driving risks across individuals and the communities in which they live. Social determinants of health, such as patients’ income level or access to food and transportation, have been estimated to account for up to 80 percent of a patient’s health outcome. This session will explore tools to enable hospitals and health systems to identify, monitor and target care to patients within a population. You will gain a conceptual foundation to help staff deepen their understanding of population health management and how social determinants of health can be used to improve outcomes.

The Future of Population Health Management
There is an opportunity facing us, an opportunity to embrace more equitable and efficient healthcare. In a world that is driven by market forces, we cannot be constrained by the status quo and instead, must lean into a true, sustainable shift to population health. Population health – the identification and management of the drivers of clinical and financial risk impacting a patient’s health outcome – is where healthcare is heading. This session will explore three key opportunities that will enable this shift: market-driven innovation, horizontal care management, and behavioral health transformation.

Population Health Transformation: Leveraging Digital and Information Technology
Integrated healthcare systems are adopting digital and information technology, along with advanced analytics, as key ingredients in their transformation to population health. This translates to improved quality and reduced medical costs and will give them a strong competitive advantage. Not only that, but the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of virtual care, and we can expect that the use of technology-based solutions will continue to grow. Virtual care, remote monitoring, smart wearables, smartphone apps, artificial intelligence, care management platforms, clinical decision support tools, and digital therapeutics all can be assembled into a comprehensive enterprise digital health strategy. This session will explore how digital technology improves access, makes care more affordable, and enhances consumer experience and satisfaction. Along with how it also dramatically improves health behaviors and self-care engagement, leading to improved outcomes and well-being for patients.

Improve Population Health Outcomes for Medicare Beneficiaries
The last of our country’s baby boomers are reaching retirement age, making them eligible for Medicare. When this group of ‘trailing edge’ boomers joins the ‘leading age’ boomers (seniors approaching 80 years), Medicare enrollment will catapult to 80 million beneficiaries by 2040. Our senior population is living longer and presents more complex healthcare needs than previous generations. Nearly 80 percent of older adults have one chronic illness while nearly 70 percent have two or more – meaning more people than ever before will rely on our nation’s healthcare delivery system. This session will explore why establishing an effective population health management strategy is even more critical for health plans trying to control increasing costs and promote healthy living among older adults, particularly those with chronic disease.

Panel: Population Health Management Trends and Best Practices
There’s a growing demand for efficient population health management solutions utilized by healthcare providers to facilitate care delivery and increase the quality and cost-effectiveness of care. The most profound and high impact population health management strategy remains the one that reaches across the care continuum, merging with virtual care enablers to reduce patients’ out-of-pocket costs while improving revenue, shared savings and quality rankings for the providers. This session will explore population health management trends and best practices.

Improving Population Health in the Post-COVID Era
The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed how healthcare systems deliver services and revealed the tenuousness of care delivery based on face-to-face office visits and fee-for-service reimbursement models. Robust population health management, fostered by value-based contract participation, integrates analytics and agile clinical programs and is adaptable to optimize outcomes and reduce risk during population-level crises. This session will explore how mature population health programs have been rapidly leveraged to address the challenges of the pandemic. Population-level data and care management have facilitated identification of demographic-based disparities and community outreach. Telemedicine and integrated behavioral health have ensured critical primary care and specialty access, and mobile health and post-acute interventions have shifted site of care and optimized hospital utilization. Beyond the pandemic, population health can lead as a cornerstone of a resilient health system, better prepared to improve public health and mitigate risk in a value-based paradigm.

Population Health and Value-Based Care
Improving clinical operations and performance to help support important quality and population health management initiatives requires a collaborative and coordinated approach. Hospitals and health systems nationwide continue to navigate the shift from volume to value-based care. As a result, the focus on improving patient access, reducing physician burnout, advancing population health and lowering the cost of care remain critical priorities. Organizations must analyze clinical workforce programs and practices to identify immediate opportunities for improvement and develop a roadmap for long-term and sustainable solutions for achieving these goals. This session will explore innovative approaches to care delivery, compensation and workforce performance, and how to empower clinicians, patients and organizations alike.

Measuring Population Health Management Return on Investment
How do you know if your population health efforts are working? Is it as simple as saving money on healthcare costs? Or is there more to it? The most effective population health management programs measure success in two ways: return on investment (ROI) and value on investment (VOI). Together, these two population health metrics create a powerful combination that will improve the health of your population and increase the overall effectiveness of your program. But if you’re unsure of the role each metric plays–or how to use them–you could be limiting your wellness program’s success. This session will explore effective ROI and VOI metrics and how to use them to get the most out of your program.

Population Health Management and Patient Engagement
Population health and patient engagement have emerged as critical in the push for value-based care in recent years. As the healthcare industry pushes toward reimbursement models that emphasize value and outcomes, it has recognized the role the patient and the health of populations will have in achieving key outcomes. The trouble, which is seen across a number of healthcare concepts, is population health and patient engagement can be somewhat nebulous topics. Although both have had a consequential impact on the industry’s progress toward value-based care, it is easy for stakeholders to use these terms interchangeably or to conflate them into one. However, population health and patient engagement are two distinct concepts that require different approaches and tools. This session will explore population health and patient engagement and the differences between the two.

Improving Population Health Management: Optimizing Care Across the Continuum
With disparities across communities and care, reaching populations at scale creates new challenges. To meaningfully impact health outcomes, providers, payers, hospitals and health systems need access to healthcare analytics, trend, and information—easily, fully and instantly. Despite the rise of medical innovations and technology, strains across the care ecosystem can jeopardize population health progress. Disparities create gaps in care that are difficult to solve with limited clinical staff and resources. These challenges link back to concerns of standardization and scale—and may negatively impact health outcomes and other measures like hospital readmission rates, clinical errors, costs, and length of stays. As hospitals navigate these and other complexities of population health, they’ll need to keep up with the latest clinical evidence and trends. Extracting insights from data – especially those tied to social determinants of health – can translate into changes in policy, programs and practice that meaningfully improve and scale care models. The ability to analyze health data across populations can inform quality improvement priorities and research projects to meaningfully improve health outcomes and patient experiences.

As another important aspect of population health, providers also need to reach out to communities. These efforts can identify at-risk patients and address underlying disparities in health equity—tasks more easily done with modern-day tools, education and patient engagement strategies. With innovative solutions that empower clinicians and analysts, this session will address population health challenges across the continuum of care and beyond.
