In today’s healthcare environment, as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, health systems must transition into value-based care. Population Health Management (PHM) is the key to improving health outcomes and reducing costs.
What is Population Health Management?
Population Health Management: "proactive application of strategies and interventions to defined groups of patients across the continuum of care in an effort to improve the health of patients within the group at the lowest necessary cost" (Health Catalyst - "What is Population Health Management?").
Within this PHM framework, the EIM Solution supports healthcare providers, hospitals and healthcare systems in adopting the PHM Care Model by stratifying patients, employees, and underserved community residents into at-risk population groups to provide effective intervention and treatment programs for chronic disease.
We encourage your healthcare system to join the EIM initiative in adopting the EIM Solution. For more information on how to bring the EIM Solution to your healthcare system, or to learn more about EIM within the PHM care model, contact the U.S. EIM Representative (located at the bottom of the page) for more information!
