Many factors, most notably the Affordable Care Act, are driving hospitals and care systems to expand their scope to focus on population health management. This change requires hospitals to realign their organizational infrastructure to be congruent with a population health approach. Survey results detailed in this report reveal great heterogeneity in how hospitals and care systems structure and implement population health management. The findings reinforce the need for further education and professional training in population health management.
