Population Health refers to the health status and health outcomes for groups of people, rather than looking at the health of one individual person. Healthcare organizations are striving to define and execute appropriate strategies and tactical approaches to address the aggregate nature of health status for their membership.
A critical component of your organization’s Population Health strategy needs to address Health Equity. In order to achieve Health Equity, all members must have access to healthcare, including the resources and opportunity to obtain services. Health Equity exists when everyone, regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, disability, socio-economic status, geographic location, or other societal constructs, has equal opportunity to access healthcare services.
