A public private collaboration strategy can provide access to resources that are outside of the traditional “four walls” of any one organization. Businesses, public organizations and healthcare providers can have a greater impact on Population Health by collaborating to address upstream determinants of Population Health and impact personal well-being.
For strategic initiatives to be successful, it is important that leadership have a true understanding of internal organizational capabilities and how best to optimally align those capabilities in support of their overall Population Health mission.
To positively impact Population Health and related social determinants of health factors, improvement efforts require technical, social and financial resources to be available at a scale matching the scale of the challenge.
In order to ensure that resources are both adequately applied and effectively utilized when seeking Population Health solutions, a systemized approach to process design and corresponding workflow is essential.
With constantly changing economic and social circumstances, leadership must effectively react to evolving external Population Health conditions, and continually strive to proactively manage internal organizational change.
