Sept. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- The term population health management (PHM) is abuzz right now, but does the industry understand its impact? HIT Consultant spoke with Mason Beard, co-founder and VP of Product Strategy at WellCentive, about this trending topic in healthcare right now.  Beard sheds light on understanding population health management and understanding the “why” behind the growing shift towards care coordination.

“PHM is a hot-button topic right now, but it’s far from a fad,” said Beard. “It is evidence of the paradigm shift taking place within the US healthcare system. For years, our system has been geared towards rewarding quantity over quality and volume over value. Its economic infrastructure and reimbursement engines haven’t been geared or optimized to take care of populations, and neither have our HIT systems."

In this ever-daunting task to figure out what’s right or what’s wrong in PHM, Beard helps provide “signal over noise” and clearly defines six essential components of a responsible population health management system that can serve as a checklist for healthcare organization considering PHM solutions.
