What is population health management?

Population health management is a term that describes a model of care where doctors and other health care professionals are responsible for the outcomes of a group of patients (or a population). If, on average, the doctors deliver high quality, efficient care to a population, they are rewarded for their high performance.

The idea behind population health management is to encourage doctors and other health care professionals to keep their patients healthy, thereby reducing the unnecessary use of expensive services, like Emergency Room visits, hospitalizations and multiple office visits.
