If you review the numerous definitions of Population Health Management being voiced by health organisations and leaders, one word that consistently stands out is ‘data’.
“Population Health Management is a patient-centric, data-driven approach to optimise the physical and mental health of populations over individual life spans and across generations”
“Population Health Management is a data-driven approach that guides the planning, resource allocation and delivery of care to optimise population health”
“Population Health Management is the concept of gathering data and insights about population health and wellbeing across multiple care and service settings, with a view to identifying the main health care needs of the community and adapting services accordingly”
The need for connected health data that tells the right stories and provides actionable insights for decision-making will only be more important as we move forwards. Now is the time to put a stronger emphasis on our data resources, skills and requirements.
