Establish defined population health goals

Insight 5 from the 2013 CEO Special Sessions

The first step to become a population health manager is to define population health. You can’t make progress toward your goal if your organization doesn’t know what the goal is.

First, develop a short list of population health goals that are actionable and measurable, rather than lofty and aspirational.

Then, communicate these goals to the entire organization, from executive leadership down to front-line staff.

To become a true population health manager, each member of the organization must understand how they contribute to the organization’s overarching vision.
