Managing chronic care populations: Improve health & contain costs

25 Feb 2019 9:40 AM | Cathy Herring (Administrator)

Healthcare in the U.S. continues to move from volume-based care to value-based care. In the process, managing chronic disease has become both a universal imperative and a foundational element of a patient-focused population health program.

Leaders of many physician groups—including those partnered with multi-hospital systems—look for a solid, practical approach to chronic care management. Though difficult, practices are changing up their organizational structure to support alternative payment models that reward maintaining a healthy population.

This paper, a joint effort between Virence Health and Physicians Medical Center, PC, used a real-world example of how PMC introduced a successful population health program into its culture and, by doing so, made the shift to proactive, team-based care, allowing them to leverage their data and improve the lives of their patients.
