Caring for vulnerable populations, such as people with complex chronic conditions, elderly populations, or those with comorbidity, is causing huge challenges for global health organizations. Although they represent a minority of the population, these groups consume a majority of health care resources. And yet, more spending doesn’t guarantee better outcomes. How can you transform care delivery to drive better results for those most at risk?

Join this webinar with Dr. Paul Grundy, founding President of the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) and IBM’s Director of IBM Global Healthcare Transformation, to discover the innovative approaches that enable better management of the complex and chronic care of vulnerable populations.

You’ll learn

  • How an integrated and holistic approach can help
  1. Lower hospitalization rates
  2. Drive better value, and lower overall health care costs
  3. Deliver improved patient health
  •     How a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) approach to health care delivery using data analytics has been proven to significantly reduce emergency room visits and hospital readmissions
  •     Technologies and tools that can analyze language and process vast amounts of information to quickly find the right options for a patient’s needs; and then make that information available to the people who need it
