The changes and costs required to establish a population heath infrastructure across a health system can be vast for those with no existing resources or foundation from which to build. The challenges associated with an infrastructure build of this magnitude most often include: integration across multi-level channels, divergent priorities and incentives among collaborating entities, engaging providers, varying degrees of data quality, and competing demands for resources. While there are numerous vendors and consultants offering population health solutions in the market, most of these offer services for building mere portions of a population health infrastructure.
Working with an organization such as PHA with a proven track record for building the governance and organizational infrastructure necessary to operationalize population health management can be a critical factor in how quickly an organization can move population health initiatives from conception to reality. The PHA advantage is its expertise and consulting competencies to be delivered throughout all phases of the population health management development.
