We’re continuing our discussion on Population Health on our podcast, the HIT Breakdown. In today’s show we’re going to take a deep dive into the first step of our Population Health methodology - Identification.
We're continuing to leverage the expertise of both Dr. David Levin, who is the Chief Medical Officer at Nordic, and Susan Marks, Director of Population Health at Amati Health. The links to the audio file appear below the show notes.
If you want to talk about population health or other challenges related to getting the most out of your EHR, please contact us. We’d enjoy the conversation.
