PRECONFERENCE: 5 KEY ELEMENTS TO IMPLEMENTING A POPULATION HEALTH STRATEGY
(Registration optional; Required for Population Health Training Program)

Join us for a special preconference session, reviewing 5 elements to implementing a Population Health Strategy. The key elements include: leadership communication skills to support culture development, patient engagement and activation, the role of health coaches, behavioral economics concepts and principles, and value-based payment programs.

Audience participation will be encouraged and this half day program will conclude with a panel discussion where the participants will try to "stump the faculty" with the challenges they face in their own communities.

At the close of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Apply leadership communication skills and practices that positively impact organizational culture and patient engagement;
  • Describe and apply a shared model for improvement in patient engagement and activation that highlights specific responsibilities of both the caregiver and patients;
  • Write a job description to successfully recruit for effective health coaches
  • Understand why population health is easier to implement under value-based payment systems rather than fee for service models
  • Apply behavioral economics principles to community-wide population health programs.
