Population Health Management, Risk Modeling, and Patient

With the growing availability of health data, healthcare delivery is moving beyond individual care to population health management. Using technology and analytics, population health management shifts care from immediate treatment to predictive and preventative care. Cambridge Healthtech Institute and Clinical Informatics News’ 4th Annual “Population Health Management, Risk Modelling, and Patient Stratification,” taking place April 4-5, 2016 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, MA, will bring together thought leaders from the payer, provider, healthcare finance, analyst, technology platform and vendor communities for insightful discussions on implementing a population health management strategy.
