Population Health Information Technology Learning and Action Network

Event Details
Wednesday, April 6, 2022 to Wednesday, April 27, 2022
1:00pm CST
Stratis Health

Population health management is a foundational component of value-based health care (VBC). As rural health organizations look toward strategies to engage in value-based alternative payment models (APMs), there are a variety of opportunities to utilize technology-based tools to support successful population health management, leading to improved patient outcomes and reduction of the total cost of care. This series delved into technologies and processes which have been incorporated by organizations as they shift to this new payment and patient care model. 

For busy rural health leaders, time is a key limitation, and awareness and understanding of technology-based tools and opportunities for their use in supporting population health strategies may often fall to the bottom of a to-do list.

These Learning and Action Network (LAN) sessions will provide a jump-start to understanding current trends in health information technologies and their potential for supporting rural population health strategies as part of transiting to VBC.  Viewers will also discover how to assess the potential use of tools that align with population health goals, as well as considerations for planning the next steps.

By viewing this LAN series, you will be able to: 

  • Describe current trends and opportunities for small rural hospitals and rural health clinics to use information technology (IT) tools to support VBC population health strategies
  • Assess potential use of IT tools to support VBC population health goals

  • Identify a plan for the next steps regarding the potential use of technology tools in your organization

It is recommended that the resources be accessed in the following order: 

  1. Supporting Succes in Rural Value-Based Care
  2. Technologies for Successful Population Health Management
  3. Using Technology to Translate Population Insights into Excellent Patient-Level Care
  4. Bringing It All Together

Registration for this event is currently closed. Access to the resources will be made available in the near future. Please reach out to rhptp@ruralcenter.org with any additional questions.
