Population Health: What is it ?

Mentioning population health to most clinicians will bring forth a 'glazed look' to their faces. Population health used to be called epidemiology.  Most clinicians facing an individual patient with their specific problems don't see any relationship between population health and the patient sitting before them.

However population health has become a new buzzword created in the noise of the Affordable Care Act, and proposed Accountable Care Organizations.

Where does the data come from for  population health management ?

Partner's Health collaborated with  Health Catalyst to extract data from several of their systems to analyze their data in order to build a population health management system.

For most hospitals and startup Accountable Care Organizations this example could serve as a model.
