While we all depend on healthcare organizations to help us stay healthy, the current model overwhelmingly emphasizes treatment of illnesses and injuries that have already occured. This widespread reactive approach to providing health-related services has created a healthcare system that more effectively functions to manage disease and delay death than preempt the underlying causes of these conditions before they reach the point where serious medical intervention is necessary. Further complicating matters are the ways that traditional healthcare services and systems are regulated, paid for, and discussed in the United States help create paradoxical incentives to care for disease instead of promoting a comprehensive vision of health. Is there another way?
During this recorded webinar presentation, Todd Davenport, PT, DPT, MPH, examines population health management frameworks, discusses the causes of inefficiency in traditional models, and provides specific organizational strategies and business practices that help promote health and more equitable care.
This session is followed by a 15-minute Q&A.
This webinar is informational only and is not accredited.
