This Week's Challenge: Healthcare's value-based purchasing increasingly favors a population-centric approach to health management, identifying risk across the care continuum.

We wanted to see the ROI generated by population health management programs.

What We Learned: HIN's first annual survey on Population Health Management, conducted in September 2012, documented the efforts of 102 healthcare organizations in population health management, including program areas, populations served, how the appropriate level of intervention is identified and much more. According to the companies who responded to the survey, the following ROI was generated by their PHM programs:
Too early to tell: 35.1 percent
Don't know: 29.7 percent
Between 2:1 and 3:1: 10.8 percent
Between 3:1 and 4:1: 10.8 percent
Between 4:1 and 5:1: 5.4 percent
Other: 5.4 percent
None: 2.7 percent
Greater than 5:1: 0 percent
