PHM uses analytics to understand and graph the risks and gaps in patient care. The benefits can include better patient outcomes, higher quality care and lower costs.
Healthcare organisations are focusing on Population Health Management (PHM) to achieve improvements in care coordination and costs. However, there are challenges with understanding the breadth of PHM as well as where to start. While it is important to look at the full picture, we do believe taking small, tangible steps can result in scalable achievements.
KPMG can help health providers implement a PHM strategy by delivering best practice recommendations to identify targeted populations, review transformation readiness and set targets and benchmark. Get in touch with Frank O’Donnell, Partner and Head of Health and Public Sector.
