The New Leadership Competencies for Population Health Management

Because population health management (PHM) is a new model of health care delivery, it makes new demands on health care boards and executives. This webinar will propose a new leadership and governance perspective on scale, volume, and partnerships. The webinar will also describe the role of leadership in fostering key population health management capabilities and introduce new leadership positions that focus on important facets of the population health model.

After this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe a new leadership mindset for PHM related to organizational scale, volume of covered or influenced lives, and partnership opportunities
  • Understand new leadership competencies to drive the transition to PHM
  • Describe new leadership roles related to key PHM needs such as organizational transformation, medical informatics, and product and benefit design
