3.) Health Risk Assessments: First Line of Defense in Population Health Management

A powerful component of a health population management strategy is the Health Risk Assessment (HRA), which evaluates a population’s health status and targets actionable programs to address identified risks. Whether implemented by employers or health plans, developing effective HRAs and mining the resulting data is a strategic means of harnessing healthcare costs and fostering consumer awareness of their own health state. Last month, the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN) polled its online audience to gauge the presence and power of HRAs in the healthcare industry.
