Physician-Led Population Health Programs: New Skills for Success

Available ON-DEMAND

As healthcare organizations reengineer care delivery to accommodate risk-based reimbursement models, population health management has emerged as a driving incentive. Physician involvement and leadership is integral to its success, but many physicians lack the skillset or motivation to take the helm.

Join leaders from the Jefferson School of Population Health and CHE Trinity Health as
they define new expectations for population health management and outline the leadership skills  necessary for physicians to direct a successful program.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Explain why physicians are best-suited to lead population health programs
  • Identify the leadership skills necessary for effective population health management and primary care redesign
  • Communicate effective approaches for physician leadership training
  • Identify the top barriers to the  success of your organization’s population health management model


  • A practical definition of population health for health systems and physicians
    • Timing the shift from volume to value
    • Addressing the social determinants of health
    • Challenges for clinical care and practice guidelines
    • Structure of population health models across the country
  • Why physicians must lead population health management 
    • Redesigning care delivery
    • Recognizing and driving out waste
  • New physician leadership skills needed
    • Good clinical skills do not equal good leadership skills
    • Ambulatory focus and systems thinking

    • New tools for physicians
