By Fred Goldstein, MS and Gregg Masters, MPH*

 

The field of population health continues to grow and create new areas of exploration and integration. Population health practitioners are called upon to play a central role as health systems, health plans or healthcare organizations work to implement their strategies designed to improve health care quality, access, outcomes and cost while weaning the US Healthcare system away from its fee-for-service reimbursement paradigm.
