Population Health – Working as a Team

Posted by Heather Caouette on Apr 30, 2015 9:40:58 AM

A desire for more coordinated care has led to the advancement of accountable care organizations (ACO) and similar models. These organizations have set out to improve the delivery of healthcare, while reducing costs and leveraging evidence-based care to collaborate with care teams and patients. At the forefront this movement is Minnesota’s Children’s Health Network (CHN), where we visited for our final Season One episode. We joined Chad Johnson, CEO, Dave Overman, President and COO of Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minn., and Dr. Kelly Lemieux, Pediatrician with Wayzata Children’s Clinic and chair of clinical operations for CHN to discuss the benefits of population health technologies, like CCMR, and their ability to enhance care.


During this podcast, we explore how population health management technology will help CHN accomplish many of its long term goals, including being more interactive with patients and integrating with school systems. The organization will also use the tools within its platform to manage all aspects of patient care.


Chad Johnson delivers insight, comparing the network of physicians to a relationship; it begins by getting to know each other and working together, and in the end you evolve and become stronger as a group.
