DSN, CCA present exclusive webinar on population health management
Population health management programs are helping providers get a comprehensive clinical picture of each patient, enabling clinicians to track and improve clinical outcomes, while also lowering costs.
However, that data is not consistently being used across the continuum of care, such as inpatient, hospital outpatient and ambulatory settings. Even less common is the integration of information on physician billing, electronic health records, medical claims, labs and pharmacies.
To help key healthcare stakeholders and industry professionals better understand the challenges and opportunities of integrating patient data to improve population health management, Drug Store News and the Convenient Care Association will host the exclusive webinar, “Partnerships in Population Health,” presented by Patrick Carroll, MD, Medical Director for Walgreens Health Care Clinic.
Slated for Wednesday, Nov. 18, “Partnerships in Population Health” is part of the six-part, DSN/CCA Retail Healthcare Webinar Series, which runs through December. Click to register.
Additional learning objectives include:
- Understanding the role of retail health in delivering on the Triple Aim to improve patient experience, reduce the cost of care and improve quality of care.
- Exploring unique risk assessment programs performed at Walgreens Healthcare Clinics.
- Understanding some of the challenges in the traditional retail health environment and how Walgreens is using a collaborative care model in partnership with local health systems to help overcome these challenges.
“Retail health clinics in traditional retail chain drug stores have become a critical boardroom conversation and a key platform to transform traditional brick and mortar retailers into integrated healthcare providers,” said Wayne Bennett, group publisher of Drug Store News.
"This educational platform is unique because the webinars are specifically designed for healthcare leadership and professionals and showcase the value proposition of the retail health industry," said Tine Hansen-Turton, executive director of the Convenient Care Association.
Moderated by Drug Store News editor Rob Eder, the DSN/CCA Retail Healthcare Webinar Series, kicks off Tuesday, Nov. 3, and includes:
- Integrated health care throughout the store, presented by Web Golinkin, CEO Rite Aid Rediclinic and Health Dialog.
