HPIO releases policy brief on population health

The Health Policy Institute of Ohio has released its latest policy brief: “What is ‘population health’?” (pdf, 12 pages). 

With support from the National Network of Public Health Institutes, through a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded project, HPIO convened a group of healthcare and public health stakeholders throughout 2014 to develop a consensus definition of population health for Ohio.

The brief describes the consensus understanding of population health that resulted from discussions among members of the HPIO Population Health Definition Workgroup.
