Finding a better path to population health

Share this:


This HealthAffairs piece looks at “milestones on the path to population health.”

The authors “propose two objectives to better shape the path toward population health: (1) connecting the patients who would most benefit from health care and supportive services—such as those with undiagnosed chronic conditions—to appropriate clinical and community resources; and (2) developing strategies to address diseases with high quality-of-life (morbidity) burdens, not just those with high mortality burdens. A truly integrated population health platform, meanwhile, would move further beyond these milestones to more fundamentally address determinants such as education, poverty, and exposure to trauma.”
