This assessment is designed to increase your overall awareness of the current role the U.S. government plays in the health care delivery system. The assessment explores the concept of population health and population health management, a new perspective being applied to health care systems.
Presently the U.S. government oversees an extensive array of health care related agencies (fifteen different federal agencies) and provides federal funding for state and local programs. It is important for all health care management professionals to gain an understanding of these agencies and how they are directly connected to, or affect operations in their organizations.
The public health system in the United States is just as extensive and often not recognized for the scope of vital responsibilities and roles it plays in assuring the health and safety of the entire population. Historically, public health and clinical medicine efforts were considered to be competitive in nature. However, over the past decade, exciting and innovative collaborative efforts have been initiated to develop health care programs designed to both prevent and reduce disease incidence rates in the U.S. population. This new business model, defined as population health, is data-driven, and strives to build innovative bridges and partnerships, and define area-specific approaches related to community needs. Population health management is focused on successfully integrating clinical care and public health efforts with an emphasis on achieving the highest quality of care at the lowest cost.
