What is Population Health?
Population health in the broadest sense addresses the large-scale social, economic, and environmental issues that impact health outcomes of groups of people. Population health can also be defined more narrowly as specific interventions to address the health needs of attributed and discretely defined subpopulations.
When applied to health care delivery, population health differs from conventional health care by emphasizing value rather than volume of services rendered.
