People have become more conscious about keeping their health on the bright side to avoid unfortunate events. Individuals especially the younger generation, primarily due to the pandemic have already started working on maintaining their health and they are halfway through it.
We are talking about individual people here. So what is population health and population health management?
Health in general means the state of physical, mental, and social well-being and not purely the absence of disease and sickness. Health should be well cherished to attain good outcomes.
Population health has been defined as “the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group”. It is an approach to health that aims to improve the health of an entire human population. It has been described as consisting of three components. These are “health outcomes, patterns of health determinants, and policies and interventions”.
It is a bimonthly peer-reviewed health journal enveloping the study of population health, and the ways to improve the same by improving healthcare services. It was first established in 1998 under the name of “Disease Management”, the current name was obtained in 2008.
The first issue of the journal under the new name “Populating Health Management” was in August 2008.
Population Health Management from the start has been concentrating on accumulating data across healthcare IT systems to allow clinicians to analyze and find the gaps in providing care for individual patients.
The PHM platforms’ main goal has always been to improve and increase the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of practices while improving the quality of targetted patient care, using the healthcare data. Everything was done to predict the community health trends better.
This was the traditional approach. However, it still needs several staff members and care coordinators (from nurses, care managers, and PAs, to social workers, specialists, and behavioral health experts) to study gaps-in-care data and create programs to help the patient achieve their health goals.
Now, many healthcare platforms differ from the traditional PHM software in providing a relatively new data source and emerging, better way to manage costly chronic conditions by offering a more integrative view of the patient’s health.
CapMinds is different from the old platform models. Our PHM solution extends the capabilities of the pre-existing Electronic Health Records (EHR), meaning, one can integrate this with their EHR easily, giving clinicians the power and ability to improve population health by supporting clinical decision support to increase their workflow.
