Population Health Academy

Summer Population Health Academy
July 29-August 2, 2019


Fall Population Health Academy
October 14-18, 2019

The Population Health Academy is a week-long intensive professional development program that provides a comprehensive overview of the tenets of population health, including the key components of creating a population health model/framework.

In the US and around the world, health and social care costs are growing at an unsustainable rate.  Numerous sub-populations have unequal access to those services or, due to other social and economic factors, and experience poor and disparate health outcomes.  Population health has emerged as a new framework for addressing health inequities and improving outcomes by integrating the fields of business management, quality, economics, informatics, epidemiology, health policy, and change management into a new paradigm of service delivery.

Attend the Population Health Academy and learn how to help your organization, patients, clients address these issues.

The Population Health Academy has been redesigned for 2019 to better meet the needs of a range of healthcare industry professionals seeking to expand their understanding of the topic. 

This next-generation professional development program offers a more intensive and robust experience that ends with the opportunity to explore practical application of the concepts.

Part 1: Population Health Essentials (Days 1-3). The program begins with a comprehensive overview of population health concepts and outlines the fundamentals necessary to improve outcomes and reduce costs. Topics include: Overview of population health and value-based care, public health and the community, healthcare quality and safety, health economics, and population health intelligence.

Part 2: Population Health Strategy & Management (Days 4-5). This 2-day workshop session builds upon concepts learned earlier in the week, and provides the opportunity for participants to focus on developing actionable strategies and practical solutions specific to their organization’s needs. (Session requirement: successful completion of Population Health Essentials or previous Population Health Academy graduate)
