Transforming Health Care Requires a Focus on Population Health

By Ken Dey, News and Community

St. Luke's Health System hosts a system summit annually for physicians, key staff and community leaders.  The annual event is an opportunity for St. Luke's to review its accomplishments and focus on what steps are being taken to accomplish the health system's  mission of improving the health of people in the region it serves.  The two-day event was held Feb. 21 and Feb. 22, 2014.  A highlight of the event was a presentation from Dr. David B. Nash from the Jefferson School of Population Health. Dr. Nash's presentation titled "The Secret Sauce" focused on how transforming health care will require a focus on population health.

Below you will find links to introductory presentations from Dr. David C. Pate, St. Luke's Health System President and CEO, and Gary Fletcher, St. Luke's Chief Operating Officer. The introductory presentations are followed by  Dr. Nash's full presentation as well as his presentation broken into four different parts.
