Center for Health Design launches new population health toolbox

Resource includes a library of expert insights, case studies, research data, strategies and tools

The Center for Health Design has launched a new topic toolbox: "Population Health". Each of the organizations's toolboxes contain a library of newly-created and center staff-curated content — research findings, expert insights, strategies, tools, and other useful resources. A portion of each topic toolbox is free to all, while the group's Affiliate+ members have access to the complete set of resources.  

A major outcome of healthcare reform is a growing focus on the concept of population health, which refers to not only the overall health of a population, but also the distribution of health. This allows healthcare organizations to extend their reach beyond the walls of their facilities to care for groups of people in the places where they live and work.

Healthcare built environments and surrounding community environments can be used to support effective population health management strategies that include establishing patient registries, monitoring cost and clinical metrics, engaging in risk management outreach programs, communicating with patients, educating patients, and coordinating effectively between care teams and patients.

The center has created the Population Health Toolbox to help healthcare providers understand this fast, growing field and all the elements that make up a successful population health management program.
