How to Attribute Clinical and Financial Outcomes

Epstein Becker Green and EBG Advisors hosted the third webinar in a series focusing on emerging trends in population health. “Measuring Success—Evaluating the Clinical and Financial Efficacy of Population Health Management Strategies,” was led by Thomas Wilson, PhD, DrPH, epidemiologist & founder of Trajectory Healthcare, LLC; and co-founder and board chair of the non-profit organization Population Health Impact Institute.

“With the advent of more complex care management interventions and numerous types of population health management strategies, health leaders need to understand the competitive advantage of adopting strong evaluation strategies to measure their effectiveness and efficiencies,” Dr. Wilson said. “This session will discuss the problem of ‘attribution’ and will offer suggestions on how to design and create programs that use comparative effectiveness evaluation techniques and promote transparent methodologies.”

Dr. Wilson’s presentation helped key stakeholders evaluate:

  • When well-done predictive modeling and data analytics can add true value.
  • Whether a program intervention is really making a difference in a targeted population and what do when it does not.
  • The types of metrics that should be used to measure patient engagement,  outcomes, and changes over time

The webinar series offered participants informative and insightful guidance on how population health strategies are transforming the health care paradigm as the industry moves towards the measurement and management of integrated delivery systems such as accountable care organizations (ACOs).

“These sessions offer participants informative and insightful guidance on how population health strategies are transforming the health care paradigm,” said Linda Tiano, a member of Epstein Becker Green’s Health Care and Life Sciences practice and moderator of the webinar. “From the Affordable Care Act and data analytics to advancements in health IT systems, a number of factors are having a significant impact on the health care delivery system.”
