WASHINGTON, DC—The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is pleased to announce the release of thePopulation Health Management Resource Guide, a tool to support health plans in developing and identifying best practices for achieving their population health management goals.
NCQA, the industry expert in quality, developed this guide in collaboration with Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC (Janssen) for health plans implementing the new population health management (PHM) category for 2018 Health Plan Accreditation. The guide walks through five components of creating a PHM strategy and includes explanations, definitions, FAQs and relevant NCQA programs and measures. The guide also includes in-the-field examples of population health management in action from 15 organizations across the country.
“With shifting accountability in the health care industry, we see the future of health care delivery as greater collaboration between the many diverse areas of health care,” said Patricia Barrett, NCQA Vice President, Product Design and Support. “We are excited to provide this Resource Guide—it will help organizations incorporate approaches for successful population health management.”
The guide is available here in digital format and includes supplemental educational materials on NCQA’s PHM standards.
