This Week's Challenge: Healthcare's value-based purchasing increasingly favors a population-centric approach to health management, identifying risk across the care continuum. To control costs, healthcare organizations and employers are turning to population health management (PHM), defined as the 'management of integration and outcome measurements of any program affecting the health and productivity of a specific population or group.' We wanted to see which tools are being used to promote consumer participation in PHM 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 top 5 tools being used to promote program participation are:
Preventive service reminders: 81.1 percent
Self-management tools: 75.7 percent
Web-based education: 62.2 percent
Community resource links: 48.6 percent
Social networking: 27 percent
