Population Health Management is an integrated approach to health care that identifies patients with chronic medical conditions. This management program encompasses a number of initiatives designed to help patients reach and maintain good health, such as supporting the doctor-patient relationship and plan of care that emphasizes the control of their disease and its complications, and use of cost-effective, recommended guidelines and self-management tools.
Shared decision making is a joint process that allows you and your patients to make health care decisions together. WPS has various decision tools available to you throughout our website to use when making decisions about your patient’s health and care. You can review your patient’s results together and get an accurate picture of the risks versus benefits of treatment options.
For more information on supported self-care for patients, decision support tools for physicians, and enrollment/referral information, visit our Customer’s Health Management page.
