Managing populations, one person at a time
We facilitate high-performing networks and align, engage and empower health care stakeholders through our industry-recognized platform, technologies and services. Our value-driven, communitywide approach supports clinical, financial and operational needs for providers, health organizations, communities, employers, payers, and state and federal governments across the continuum for today and tomorrow.
At its core, population health is about improving outcomes for communities by improving outcomes for the individual. Health care is fundamentally shifting from managing encounters and venues to people across networks, and providers need solutions to know, manage and engage with their populations. As health IT (HIT) leaders, we must deliver the necessary solutions and services that empower our clients to identify, engage and maintain lifetime relationships at scale with the consumers they serve.
"I've seen more positive changes in the last year than I have seen in the last five years combined. I feel like this is a true partnership, and Cerner is embedded here at Genesis and is clearly part of the organization."
— Kevin Cahill, Director of Pharmacy, Genesis Health System
Early recognition of sepsis is imperative to early treatment and saving lives. A sepsis clinical decision support system that offers real-time surveillance and electronic alert notification capabilities is more reliable when incorporating trusted clinical definitions of sepsis.
Population health management is showing us that the future of the industry is person-centered care.
"…personalized care will only be achieved through integration of data from sources within and outside the EHR platforms – it is about time for the health care industry to begin taking advantage of cloud-based big data analytics, like HealtheIntentSM to manage patients. "
— Alistair Erskine, Chief Clinical Informatics Officer, Geisinger Health System
Many industries over the past several decades have experienced the digitization of processes and content - music, banking, retail - today, health care is in the midst of this evolution. Reactive, volume-oriented care is transitioning to proactive, efficient and high quality management of health. The implementation of the electronic health record has been an essential step forward in freeing health care information from the confines of a handwritten paper chart, yet we still have a journey ahead of us. Population health management has been a common buzzword in the industry as the answer to how we solve for our problems of relentless increases in care costs with less than acceptable improvements in quality. Behind the buzzword is substance. However, what does population health management mean, and how do we begin to lay down a foundational plan?
