Community Integrated Health in Practices: Partnerships with Impact

Successful practice transformation requires the adoption of broad population health strategies. Community-based organizations can play an integral role in this arena.  As providers accept more risk under value-based payment models, there is a greater emphasis on managing chronic disease.  Evidence-based programs targeting persons with two or more chronic conditions have increasing importance to success with the introduction of new payment models.
