Transition Management: Where the population health management rubber hits the road

This post was written by George Pace, Kyruus' Director of Client Development

A health system CEO once told me that anyone who tells you she knows what “population health management” means is lying. While I wouldn’t use similarly strong language to make that point, I have had many conversations with health system and health plan leaders about “population health management”, and through those conversations have come to understand that we do not nearly have a uniform definition of what the term even means. The absence of a uniform definition for population health management can be attributed to market variability, i.e. my population is different from yours, and therefore implies a different approach to managing it.
