Featured Webinar Replay:

Managing Population Health with Integrated Registries and Effective Patient Touchpoints

Jim Bellows, PhD, senior director of evaluation and analytics at Kaiser Permanente:

"We're trying to address our members' entire range of health needs — mind, body and spirit. That's an important backdrop to our work in managing population health because that brings us into spaces where it's not only about managing chronic conditions or exacerbations of those conditions, it's about managing health behaviors and supporting our members in health behavior change."
