HIMSS Survey Shows Population Health Initiatives Gaining Momentum

Results show that while many organizations have plans in place, few are utilizing vendor-provided IT solutions

January 5, 2016 — As the emphasis on the change in delivery of care escalates from volume- to value-based care, population health management initiatives are becoming more prevalent across the healthcare industry. However, many organizations are addressing their initial population health needs without a population health vendor-provided IT solution. A new study from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) offers insight from nearly 200 healthcare executives (C-Suite, administrators, directors and vice presidents) on their population health initiatives, and their current and future approach to population health IT solutions and consultants.

“While roughly 67 percent of surveyed organizations claim to have population health programs in place,” said HIMSS Analytics Director of Research Brendan FitzGerald, “only one-quarter of those currently utilize a vendor-provided solution to address their population health needs.”

Other highlights include:

  • Roughly 11 percent of study respondents with initiatives in place currently use a consultant for their population health strategy;
  • Over half of study respondents without current population health initiatives in place plan to employ initiatives in the future; and
  • Just over a third of organizations with plans to employ population health initiatives in the future plan to use a consultant or would consider it.
