Date: 05.15.2013 | Zach Urbina">Zach Urbina

medicare-advantage-270Health Affairs recently ran an extremely in-depth blog post, authored by multiple healthcare IT professionals, covering a study on population health management in Medicare Advantage.

The salient points included strategies for the practice of population health management, including:

  • Wellness promotion
  • Chronic disease management
  • Elder care strategies
  • Reduced readmissions
  • Provider support

The MA [Medicare Advantage] experience reveals that PHM involves design and implementation of both extensive and intensive services to manage the needs of a complex population.   Ultimately what matters is the extent to which these interventions are successful in improving quality and reducing costs.
