Population Health and Academic Medical Centers: High Cost Meets High Efficiency

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Academic medicine is at an inflection point with the changing priorities of health care to focus more on population health. In this new model of care, the academic medical center (AMC) tripartite mission needs to be reworked into a new framework that prioritizes management of populations, integration, adaptability, and rapid learning. To complete this change, AMCs will have to undergo the hard work of culture change, which will be facilitated by restructuring governance and organizational structures to fund and champion the population health view. Care coordination and fund health information technology enhancements will be needed to support this work.
