Population Health At The Hospital Level 
Population health is one of the most ambitious undertakings in the healthcare sector, and also among the most crucial. Americans are aging, and the incidence of devastating chronic diseases such as diabetes have been skyrocketing. Given the costs of delivering care in the U.S. is twice of any other industrialized nation, the need to improve health status and outcomes on the level of a community or higher is absolutely crucial.

Although engaging in population health delivery is timely, it is also time-consuming and costly. How can a hospital or healthcare system deliver it with efficiency and measure results and return on investment?

Escalating healthcare costs and greater competition coupled with increased consumerism are the driving forces behind St. Luke's Hospital's strategies to grow market share and increase revenues in a competitive market. The approach they have refined over the past eight years can serve as an example for healthcare executives who would like to do the same. Using an informative case-study format, this 493-bed independent hospital will discuss how it tackled the difficult task of measurably impacting population health while fostering affinity with local consumers.

Among the topics to be delivered in this webinar will include partnering and creating a culture of health with local employers; ROI analysis and methodology; and decision areas in population health.

  1. Understand the challenges hospitals face in creating population health programs – both in the long and short-term – and how to best manage them.
