Population Health is an approach aimed at improving the health of an entire population.
It is about improving the physical and mental health outcomes and wellbeing of people, whilst reducing health inequalities within and across a defined population. It includes action to reduce the occurrence of ill-health, including addressing wider determinants of health, and requires working with communities and partner agencies.
Population Health Management
Population Health Management improves population health by data driven planning and delivery of proactive care to achieve maximum impact.
It includes segmentation, stratification and impactabilty modelling to identify local ‘at risk’ cohorts - and, in turn, designing and targeting interventions to prevent ill-health and to improve care and support for people with ongoing health conditions and reducing unwarranted variations in outcomes.
