Population health management(PHM) encompasses a broad range of care services, from wellness and prevention through disease and complex case management. PHM recognizes that early intervention can help older patients feel better, help those who are at risk stave off the development of chronic conditions, and educate those with chronic illnesses about ways to mitigate complications and decline. PHM is a data and technology driven model for delivering and coordinating appropriate cost-effective care. PHM intervention and care management models optimize physician office practices, ancillary service delivery, and other services to improve patient health and add value.

Earlier this year the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) unveiled Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) in an effort to strengthen primary care services through a regionally-based multi-payer payment reform and care delivery transformation. CPC+ is a new advanced primary care model. Set to begin in January 2017, CPC+ will reward quality and value through modified payment structure supporting primary care.
The program will offer two primary care practice tracks consisting of incrementally advanced care delivery requirements and payment options to meet the diverse needs of primary care practices. The two tracks will focus on:
- Comprehensiveness and Coordination
- Planned Care and Population Health
- Care Management
- Patient and Caregiver Engagement
- Access and Continuity
