Pioneer in Pediatric Population Health Management Shares Best PracticeApproaches to Improving Outcomes at HIMSS15


Atlanta,GA – April 6, 2015

Children’s HealthAlliance (CHA), an award-winning pioneer in pediatric population health management (PHM), willshare how it is operationalizing its innovative, community-wide solution for improving pediatric outcomes using Wellcentive’s technology at theHealthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s Annual Conference& Exhibition (HIMSS15) in Chicago. Demonstrations of CHA’s solution for populationhealth management are available at the Wellcentive booth 8739.

Monday, April 13, 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. CT,Room W196C, McCormick Place, Chicago.

CHA’s Deborah Rumsey, executive director, and Julie Harris, director of qualityprograms, will outline the pediatric group’s quality improvement journey in a presentation titled
Pediatricians Pioneer Population HealthcareApproaches. Topics include:

  • Drivers for physician-led, office-based care management

  • Program design for a community-wide population health solution
  • Demonstrating value to physicians, families and other community stakeholders 
  • Methodologies for assessing the level of support patients need from their careteam
  • Operationalizing a technology-driven, community-wide population health solution

CHA will share the specific, measurable results of its efforts, as well as how technology is bringing its quality program to life—activating data to provide insights, enable workflows and enhance management of high-risk populations.

Few topics are moreimportant for providers today than implementing programs and solutions to accelerate the transformation necessary to prosper in the new world of value-based care. CHA’s perspective on this topic is of particular interest since robust systems and models for population health management have not been standardized in pediatrics. Much of the effort nationwide in developing those models and methods has focused on adult populations and fails to take into account the unique developmental needs of children and their families.
