Event description


The Population Health Academy, a week-long professional development program offered by the Jefferson College of Population Health, provides an overview of the tenets of population health and the key components necessary to build a population health model/framework.

In the US and around the world, health and social care costs are growing at an unsustainable rate and numerous sub-populations have unequal access to those services, receive different benefits, and experience poor and disparate outcomes. Population health has emerged as a new framework for solving these problems by integrating the fields of business management, quality, economics, informatics, epidemiology, health policy, and change management into a new paradigm of service delivery. Attend the Population Health Academy and learn how to help your organization, patients, clients address these issues.

The newly revised and updated Population Health Academy offers two programs in one to better meet your educational needs.

Population Health Essentials (Days 1-3). This 3-day introductory program provides a comprehensive overview of population health and outlines the fundamentals necessary to improve outcomes and reduce costs. Topics include: Overview of population health and value-based care, public health and the community, healthcare quality and safety, health economics, and population health intelligence.

Population Health Strategy & Management (Days 4-5). This 2-day workshop session builds upon concepts learned earlier in the week, and provides the opportunity for participants to focus on developing actionable strategies and practical solutions specific to their organization’s needs. (Session requirement: successful completion of Population Health Essentials or previous Population Health Academy graduate)
