Population Health has gravitated to become a central component of the delivery of healthcare in the 21st century. It is critical for leaders, clinicians and staff of healthcare organizations to have a vision going forward on how to best incorporate population health into their approach - sharing from insights, innovations, best practices, strategies and experiences from national leaders involved with population health.

The Second Annual Population Health Web Summit features a 90 minute webinar with three prominent population health speakers that will share their organizational experience, insights, strategic perspectives and operational and clinical knowledge. BDC Advisors' David Fairchild, MD, MPH, will address five health care trends that impact  population health strategy: Consumerism (narrow networks; price sensitivity); Direct provider - employer contracting (disruptive innovation and/or opportunity for providers to align with payer in pop health); Retail medicine- Medicine's new front door (do you build, buy, or partner with retail clinics?); Work site clinics (more fragmentation of the health care system, or cost Ė effective means to reach the working person?); and Telemedicine (leveraging the physician assets you have).

The webinar continues with Catholic Health Initiatives' Tamara Cull, DHA, MSW, LCSW, ACM, exploring how to achieve triple aim values and objectives from care delivered throughout the care continuum within value-based programs.  The webinar concludes with Milliman's Jeremy Kush, ASA, MAAA, and Susan Philip, MPP, discussing telemedicine utilization rates and patterns and their implications in addressing healthcare access barriers, along with addressing five other factors impacting telemedicine's potential in this regard, including coverage and payment; clinical appropriateness and quality of care; technological limitations; legal and regulatory constraints; and patient and provider comfort.

The event also includes two on-demand sessions, Leslie Marshburn and Shobhika Somani from Kurt Salmon discussing how and why patient complexity is reshaping care delivery; and Ascension Health's Doctor Michael Kobernick discussing applying the principles of population health to improve the health of a large employee population and illustrate the value of a population health driven approach to practicing physicians.
