Resource Overview

Population Health Management (PHM) is an evolving concept encompassing a suite of emerging technologies to aggregate, analyze and use data to improve clinical and financial outcomes.  PHM tools enable health centers to identify, monitor and target care to patients within a population. Resources in this section provide a conceptual foundation to help health center staff deepen their understanding of PHM and how the social determinants of health can be used to improve outcomes.

Measuring Population Health Management Return on Investment

A methodology to calculate ROI (Return on Investment) using a Matrix Tool

There is a great deal of interest among health centers, Primary Care Associations (PCAs), and Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) in the advantages associated with investing in Population Health Management (PHM) electronic platforms.  Measuring specific and quantifiable returns clarifies the benefits and supports consistent understanding among stakeholders of the value of PHM.

Available below, the PDF document titled Measuring Population Health Management Return on Investment outlines a conceptual process for measurement of ROI of a population health management system offered at the network level. What is presented here could also be used a starting point for developing an ROI analysis at the organizational level. The companion tool, an Excel file titled PHM ROI Matrix Tool, provides recommendations for measurement for different stages of PHM implementation and an ROI calculator.
