Midwest Forum on Hospitals, Health Systems and Population Health

Please join the Illinois Public Health Institute for the Midwest Forum on Hospitals, Health Systems and Population Health from November 29th to December 1st. The forum will bring together organizations and key stakeholders dedicated to improving the health of all Americans. The goal of the meeting is to engage attendees in a broad dialogue across sectors to solve complex issues to improve the health of communities and integrate clinical and community health and prevention strategies. Participants will share innovative models that are working and inspire the audience to take action to help transform the existing system of care in the United States to a system that strategically plans for and supports the health of its population. Building on health equity as the core forum theme, topics include:

  • The policy environment for population health and health system transformation
  • Using data for care coordination and population health
  • Aligning financial incentives and payment for population health
  • The role of purchasers and payers in population health
