Institute Releases Population Health Executive Toolkit

March 20, 2019

Essential Hospitals Institute has released a toolkit to help essential hospitals develop leadership positions for population health improvement. 

The toolkit provides several resources for hiring and evaluating population health executives, including:

  • A core set of skills.
  • A list of hiring considerations.
  • A template job description.
  • A skill assessment worksheet.

Hospitals can use these tools to build the workforce and leadership they need to improve population health in their communities.   

The Institute developed the toolkit through a 24-month project, funded by the Kresge Foundation. Phase I of the project served as a formative evaluation and included focus groups with member hospitals, qualitative interviews with experts in the field, and a stakeholder summit in July 2018. Phase II focused specifically on curriculum and implementation for essential hospitals.
