AHRMM NEWS
AHRMM assembled a task force comprised of experts in the fields of healthcare supply chain, finance, and value analysis to examine the current population health management landscape in order to determine what impact these programs are having on the physical and behavioral health of people and the financial health of hospitals, health systems, and other community-based health related organizations.
 
In this report we present their findings, including insights from healthcare thought leaders, guiding principles for population health management success, and case studies documenting population health management programs across the six care domains.
 
 
As more hospitals and healthcare systems merge, many find themselves in uncharted waters especially when it comes to effectively integrating both systems and cultures. This webinar will provide an overview of the key components critical to collaboratively developing and implementing an effective integration plan that addresses both technical and cultural issues. In addition, best practices and lessons learned will be shared.
