National Forum on Hospitals, Health Systems and Population Health
Agenda: Preconference
Wednesday, October 22, 2014

7:30 am Registration for Preconference Attendees (Registration Optional; Requires Separate Registration)

This interactive pre-conference workshop will teach participants how to communicate to leaders about population health models that bridge health and health care. The ReThink Health Dynamics Model is an interactive, evidence-based computer simulation tool that participants will use to test their own scenarios in real time and then examine how these different interventions and investment strategies can improve health, care, costs, equity, and productivity. Participants will learn how a simulation tool like ReThink Health can help local leaders experiment and anticipate the likely effects of population health initiatives, policy interventions, financing schemes, and investment strategies. The session will be led by senior members of ReThink Health with on-the-ground perspectives.
