The growing demand for PHM solutions

There’s a growing demand for efficient population health management (PHM) solutions utilized by health care providers to facilitate care delivery and increase the quality and cost-effectiveness of care.

Evaluating best-in-class strategy

The most profound and high impact PHM strategy remains the one that reaches across the care continuum, merging with virtual care enablers to reduce patients’ out-of-pocket costs while improving revenue, shared savings and quality rankings for the providers.
