Improving Coordinated Care During COVID-19 and Beyond

"Meeting the healthcare needs of patients requires multiple organizations, people and resources throughout the patient journey. As the patient moves through the system, simple, accessible and precise communication among care teams has the power to improve quality patient care.

Healthcare navigation for providers and patients, however, has always been a barrier to potential sophisticated population health management interventions. The pandemic forced providers to adopt technology quicker and revealed there are ways to adopt technology and support clinicians in the business of healthcare."

Two Pop Health Webinars

Available Now, Free to the Population Health Management Community 

High Quality Data for High Quality Population Health Programs

Today’s population health professionals have access to more data than ever before to help guide effective, engaging healthy lifestyle interventions. But where do you start, and how can you ensure you have quality data? As technology advances, gathering personalized data is the key to more targeted intervention programs that can increase engagement and improve health outcomes. When it comes to collecting data, bad data in = bad data out.
Watch the recording from PHA's most recent webinar, showcasing how Wellsource, NCQA, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska practice excellence in quality data collection, management, and analysis.
