Population Health Management: Beyond the EHR

White Paper Published By: IBM Watson Health

Type:  White Paper
Length:  12 pages

Electronic health records (EHRs) are necessary, but were not designed to anchor population health management (PHM). This is partly because they lack semantic interoperability, which is the ability of disparate information systems to share data and enable communications among users in a meaningful way.

This paper explains how an approach that includes a care collaboration platform can manage population health by aggregating and normalizing the necessary data.
