CLEVELAND, Aug. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Top officials from three of Cleveland's leading healthcare institutions will headline Modern Healthcare's upcoming Sept. 24 Issue Briefing on population health management. The Cleveland event is the third in this year's multi-city series exploring how population health management is being addressed in local healthcare markets.
Dr. William Steiner, interim president of the University Hospitals Accountable Care Organization; Dr. James Misak, vice chair of community and population health in MetroHealth System's family medicine department; and Dr. James Gutierrez, chairman of the community internal medicine department at the Cleveland Clinic Medicine Institute, will discuss a range of topics related to population health management, including the impact of new payment models that emphasize value, the role of health information technology, and the progress being made by Cleveland hospitals, physicians and insurers.
"Evolving data capabilities and fast-changing healthcare reimbursement structures that emphasize value over volume have pushed population health management to the top of the priority list," said Fawn Lopez, vice president and publisher of Modern Healthcare. "The issue briefings are designed to educate providers on healthcare needs across the entire population they serve and also provide a great networking opportunity for healthcare professionals of all sectors," added Lopez.
"Population health management is a critically important issue and these city breakfasts give local stakeholders the chance to learn from one another and forge key relationships," said Maureen McKinney, Modern Healthcare's editorial programs manager.
