Healthcare Quality and Safety, Practice Transformation and More to Be Featured at Population Health Academy

The Population Health Academy is a five-day course that provides a high-level overview of concepts in population health.

Jefferson’s five-day Population Health Academy will provide a high-level overview of concepts in population health.

Healthcare is currently undergoing a paradigm shift from a hospital-dominated, disease-driven economic model to one that rewards everyone in the system for helping the patients they serve become and remain healthy. In order for Jefferson to be successful in this emerging paradigm, we need leaders and healthcare professionals who understand population health.

From July 16-20, the Jefferson College of Population Health (JCPH) will offer a continuing education program that provides an overview of basic concepts in population health. The Population Health Academy is designed for health system leaders and key administrators seeking a comprehensive introduction to the subject. Each day’s content builds on the previous sessions.

Through case studies and real-life workplace applications, participants in the Population Health Academy will review and analyze key areas of population health:

  • U.S. Healthcare Organization and Administration
  • Health Economics and Population Health
  • Overview of Population Health
  • Practice Transformation
  • Healthcare Quality and Safety
  • Data Analytics
  • Managing the Care Continuum

JCPH is offering a limited number of deeply discounted tickets to our Jefferson community. Jefferson employees will receive $1,000 off the regular price of $3,000. Register now to ensure your seat. Enter “Jefferson18” in the promotional discount box.
