JeffAPCT - Population Health

Most current practitioners were not prepared during their training programs to incorporate principles of population health, quality, and safety into their daily practice. As Jefferson re-imagines healthcare by creating a larger regional population health network, we have recognized the need for more primary care providers and more robust primary care practices to form the foundation of a system prepared to take risk for the health of populations. There is clear consensus that a robust primary care system capable of managing the health of populations is a critical component to the success of our healthcare system. Yet too few clinicians enter primary care and those in practice often lack key competencies to effectively manage populations. As the healthcare system undergoes dramatic and rapid change at the national, regional, and local levels, this curriculum will allow for increased competence in managing the health of populations. Because primary care is often the first contact for behavioral health, primary care providers should be familiar with the barriers to care as well as potential solutions such as integrated behavioral health. Clinicians often lack competencies related to addressing behavioral health from a population health perspective through models of integrated behavioral health.
