Inpatient stays, though sometimes necessary, can be physically and mentally challenging for patients and are expensive for both those seeking treatment and providing care. This can be especially true for patients with chronic conditions that require consistent management and care coordination, oftentimes between multiple facilities and physicians, according to a new infographic by Definitive Healthcare.

The infographic examines the five most common chronic health conditions in the United States as well as their associated costs and comorbidities.

2018 Healthcare Benchmarks: Population Health ManagementAs the healthcare industry’s pace from volume-based to value-based healthcare payment models accelerates so does the demand for more effective management of population health. With the growth of these payment models, healthcare organizations are taking on more risk in terms of shared savings and shared risk arrangements and are investing heavily in programs to support population health. These programs are expanding in both scope of services and health conditions and disease states managed. With the help of advanced technologies in healthcare, this growth will only continue.

2018 Healthcare Benchmarks: Population Health Management is the fourth comprehensive analysis of population health management by the Healthcare Intelligence Network, capturing key metrics such as populations, health conditions and health risk levels targeted by population health management programs; risk stratification criteria; prevalence of value-based payment models supporting population health management programs; population health management processes, tools, workflows and forms; and program outcomes and ROI from responding healthcare organizations.
