As the health care industry shifts to value-based care payment models, more providers are investing in population health management strategies to help improve patient outcomes.

Ryan Hamilton, senior vice president of population health at Cerner, joined The Cerner Podcast to discuss the market shift and what organizations can do to deliver better care.
