SEA GIRT, NJ, USA, December 28, 2012 --- Healthcare's value-based purchasing increasingly favors a population-centric approach to health management, identifying risk across the care continuum. To control costs, healthcare organizations and employers are turning to PHM --- the management of integration and outcome measurements of any program affecting the health and productivity of a specific population or group.
2012 Healthcare Benchmarks: Population Health Management, a new publication from the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN), delivers the latest metrics and measures on current and planned PHM initiatives, providing actionable data on the most effective PHM tools and workflows, risk identification strategies, tools to boost health plan member and consumer engagement, modalities for program delivery and much more.
