Population Health Management
Forging connections to manage population health
For more than three decades, Optum has been one of a few leading the health care industry with best-in-class population health management, analytics and clinical and financial services technology. We realize each health system and provider group has a unique set of challenges and we help them adapt and thrive in the continuously evolving health care landscape.
Simply put, population health requires seamless data sharing between health care organizations, insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, physicians, pharmacies and other stakeholders. Once consolidated and aligned, this data fosters evidence-based decision support, a holistic and collaborative approach to health care and safer diagnoses and treatment.
Care coordination, actionable analytics help Monarch HealthCare achieve Pioneer ACO shared savings
Monarch HealthCare, an independent practice association (IPA) and one of the lead Pioneer ACOs, was known for providing quality care and controlling its costs. Even so, achieving shared savings under a value-based model of care wasn’t a foregone conclusion. By focusing its efforts on key strategies that included care coordination and actionable analytics, Monarch successfully bent the cost curve and achieved the second-highest percentage shared savings among Pioneer ACOs.

Connectivity and cost-savings go hand in hand
Shifting to a secure, electronic, interoperable health information system — one that eliminates delay, highlights patient needs and encourages collaborative, patient-centered care — holds the potential to boost efficiency and quality across the entire continuum of care.
Analyze and Learn
Transform health information into health intelligence
Inside the data are the keys to understanding the population for which health organizations are now accountable. Optum™ can help you answer questions such as: Who are these new patients? What are their morbidity profiles? How and where do they consume medical resources? Who needs intervention now? Who are the top performers in improving outcomes? Today, most health organizations do not have the information, the platform or the ability to perform these analyses.
Measure and Monitor
Using patient-reported outcome surveys at the point of care
A new patient just completed the standard medical history form in your waiting room. As you begin the examination, you know nothing about the patient beyond what is on that form. Your examination is thorough but you are never certain you have captured all the in-depth information you need.
