Population Health

Populations vary dramatically in their risk for future cost and their need for medical services. Health risk may be examined at a population (employer group or plan) level, or it may be examined at the individual patient level. Understanding risk at the population level is important for plan design, re-insurance, networks, reimbursements, and quantification of other population level concerns. Understanding risk at the patient level allows development of focused interventions and quantifies the impact on individuals in the population. Both types of analysis are important to understand the health status of a given population.

Many factors contribute to future risk including:

  • Case Mix
  • Illness Burden
  • Demographics
  • Access to Care
