Topic Profile: Data and Population Metrics
This topic profile outlines emerging issues, identified barriers and lessons learned around data and population metrics.
AcademyHealth's Payment Reform for Population Health initiative and the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement hosted a two-day workshop, “Striving Toward a Culture of Health: How Do Non-Medical Needs Factor into Alternative Payment Models?”, which convened five multi-sector teams led by regional health improvement collaboratives (RHICs) to foster shared learning with each other as well as content experts to inform next steps in their own specific community-based collaborative projects. The workshop focused on four key topic areas and the related barriers that potentially influence the conditions and collaborations necessary to support non-clinical community-wide population health services.
This profile highlights one of these topic areas, the issue of data and population metrics related to measuring non-clinical interventions, along with the barriers and lessons learned from the workshop.
