Reimagining Population Health Management

Can Genomics Evolve our Sick Care System into a True Healthcare System

Date: December 15, 2020
Time: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm PST

Imagine if our healthcare system could actually prevent us from becoming patients in the first place.

In today’s healthcare, we use only 10% of the data that predicts health outcomes. Genetic information has the potential to radically improve our predictive power and to help risk-stratify the patients at highest and lowest risk of common chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension.

This webinar will explore how using genetics as a routine part of our healthcare can help us improve population health management—by identifying the highest-risk patients and proactively delivering personalized, preventive interventions to the right patients at the right time.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:
  • The channels, tools, and delivery methods that could be used for population health management;
  • How genomics can be paid for when applied as a population health management tool in the transition to value-based care; and
  • How digital health companies should think about building solutions for population health management.
