Population Health

Population health refers to health behaviors and outcomes of a broad but defined group of individuals. Population health measures serve as an indicator of a group’s overall health and well-being. Example of measure topics include access to care, care coordination, and preventive care and screening.

Population health is dependent on a variety of factors, not limited to clinical settings. Economic and social factors, such as poverty, housing instability, or lack of transportation, can substantially impact access to care and health outcomes.

As the scope and prevalence of population health grow, America’s Essential Hospitals seeks to examine the upstream effects of population health improvement efforts in the communities served by essential hospitals.
