Population health consists of analyzing population-based outcome patterns influenced by where people are born, grow, work, and age (Nash et al., 2021). Population-focused care explores the influence of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) on health-related outcomes as well as patient motivation to engage in care.
Healthcare professionals will understand the differences between population health and medical care/episodes of care and learn problem-solving approaches and tools to incorporate population analytics and informatics for actionable responses to change population health outcomes. The two-day experience will end with a problem-solving team experience to practice utilizing tools to incorporate patient data analysis in actionable responses to change population health outcomes.

- Develop oral presentation skills
Any interprofessional healthcare worker responsible for point-of-care encounters (i.e. nurses, social workers, physicians, physician assistants, primary care professionals, etc.) will benefit from this program.
