I recently wrote a Guest Blog Post for Hiking Trails for America and the Friends of the Florida Trail. I have been on the Board of Friends of the Florida Trail since its founding by Jim Kern. Jim is the founder of the Florida Trail and a number of non-profit hiking organizations. His mission now is to complete the 10 National Scenic Trails that still have gaps or unprotected sections. You can help support our efforts by signing the petition. There are many health benefits to getting out into nature and this Guest Post documents a few.
Here’s a picture from my recent trip along the Suwannee River on the Florida National Scenic Trail. Click on it to read the Post and please sign the petition. Thanks!!
Population Health continues to be a major buzzword around the healthcare industry. At the recent HiMSS 17 conference in Orlando the talk of population health was everywhere from the vendor booths to the presentations, but where does one turn to get more than just the IT focus of population health? Where can one get a sense of the breadth and depth of population health from operations to policy, current status to future state, provider implementations, data and analytics, patient engagement, in the weeds medication adherence and wearables to large community based initiatives? In other words where can one find a full serving of all that population health is?
That place is the Jefferson Population Health Colloquium, also in its 17th year.
This year’s event features keynotes ranging from the Future of Managed Care to Good Health is Good Business: The Results of an Innovative Alignment with Physicians and Communities.
Here are just a few of the many leaders providing keynotes this year include:
The balance of keynotes can be found on the program Agenda. The range and diversity topics covered is impressive.
Digging deeper into the Colloquium’s agenda we find ‘mini-summits‘ and ‘concurrent sessions’ on day two covering the following topics:
And concurrent sessions:
Also on Day two will be the awarding of the Hearst Health Prize For Excellence in Population Health now in its second year, this $100,000 prize goes to……..? Check out last year’s debrief of the winner ‘Community Care of North Carolina‘.
Tuesday evening closes with an optional dinner session, but one definitely worth attending to hear from Michael Dowling and Dr. Stephen Klasko on a panel moderated by David Nash MD, MBA. This interesting and informative panel will discuss The Future of Clinically Integrated Networks a critically important component of creating a better health system and integrating population health.
I hope to see you there.
