A carefully curated population health management program begins with risk stratification and fosters collaborations with stakeholders that can raise the bar on health outcomes while educating participants about appropriate utilization of services such as the hospital emergency room.

Beyond that framework, for the great majority of respondents to a 2012 survey on population health management by the Healthcare Intelligence Network, this strategy should also encompass health coaching.

With healthcare’s value-based purchasing increasingly favoring a population-centric approach to health management, the top PHM program components cited by respondents are the following:

  • Health coaching: 78.7 percent
  • Provider feedback on care gaps: 46.8 percent
  • Support group: 29.8 percent
  • Telemonitoring: 25.5 percent
  • Other: 23.4 percent
  • Group visits: 19.1 percent
