Population Health Management

Population health management is a strategy that keeps patients as healthy as possible, reducing the need for hospitalizations, emergency room visits and medical procedures.

We recognize that your employees have varying needs, so we strategically focus our resources on each segment. Our advanced analytics and risk scoring tools allow us to identify employer-specific issues and develop clinical programs in response to your needs. We work with you to:

  • Focus on prevention with physician-coordinated wellness initiatives
  • Develop employee incentives for health management
  • Give patients with chronic illness access to educational tools through our clinical support programs
  • Provide comprehensive medical care for advanced illness

At Henry Ford Physician Network, we use two complimentary, data-driven strategies to ensure results:

  • Effective Management
    • Our emphasis is on continuous quality improvement
    • We apply the PDCA cycle (Plan-Do-Check-Act), a common business management approach for analyzing and updating internal processes to get results
    • We give our physicians the tools they need for efficient management, such as a common IT platform through our EMR solutions
  • Peer-to-Peer Accountability
    • We offer targeted physician incentives, so there is a clear connection between performance metrics and incentive payout
    • We release quarterly reports of un-blinded data on our Triple Aim performance, which tells us how well we are improving patient health and reducing health costs
    • We also use common, balanced scorecard metrics across all health plans, products and contracts
