Population health management goes beyond traditional disease management and incorporates both preventive, wellness, and chronic care needs. The goal of population health management is to keep a patient population as healthy as possible. The RN in the CCTM Role uses population health management to organize systems of care for populations; and to identify and implement evidence-based interventions and measure outcomes for both the individual and the population. Patient data including utilization data, medical record data, and evidence based measures are used to stratify the population and aid the RN in identifying patients for outreach. Interventions include closing gaps in evidence based measures and surrounding the patient with support to be successful in self-managing their health. A discussion of evolving health care policy development and its impact on regulatory and payer expectations and the provision of care to define populations will be discussed as will the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for the RN in the CCTM role.
Purpose: The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to integrate the principles and key elements of population health management into the RN Care Coordination and Transition Management (RN-CCTM) role.
