Population health has changed the landscape of health and healthcare delivery. It’s recognized as critical to controlling the cost of care, improving quality and, ultimately, achieving better health outcomes. The practice of population health has taken on even more importance in today’s uncertain environment.

The 18th Population Health Colloquium from March 19-21, which the Jefferson College of Population Health serves as the academic partner, will bring together healthcare providers, payers, pharmaceutical executives, leading technology and solutions companies, academia and government to highlight advances in population health. Leaders within the industry will share best practices, case studies, expert insights and industry trends.

Among the many highlights, Barbara Klinkhammer, executive dean of the College of Architecture and the Built Environment at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University), will discuss designing and implementing a population health initiative, and Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, president and CEO of Jefferson and Jefferson Health will join Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health, for a dinner program on disrupting healthcare. (The dinner is a separate ticket and doesn’t require full conference registration.)

The Population Health Colloquium will be March 19-21 at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia. Jefferson students, faculty and staff can use the code Jefferson18 for a registration discount. Contact melissa.horowitz@jefferson.edu with any questions.
