We are thrilled to welcome these organizations and to incorporate their distinct and important perspectives into our collective efforts on behalf of the industry
Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
The Population Health Alliance, a leading non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the principles of population health, announced today that it has welcomed three new member organizations to its growing association. New members include Jefferson School of Population Health, eQHealth Solutions, and Jiff.
“The field of population health continues to grow and evolve – not only in terms of the diversity of organizations and entrepreneurs offering creative solutions, but in the rigor required to frame issues and ideas for both policy makers and business leaders,” said Fred Goldstein, executive director of the Population Health Alliance. “We are thrilled to welcome these organizations and to incorporate their distinct and important perspectives into our collective efforts on behalf of the industry.”
PHA members work in a collaborative environment, and charter the agenda for the population health industry as a whole, through advocacy and research efforts. This results in a community that shares information, data and outcomes among employers, payers, innovative technology startups, long-term providers of population health management solutions, and others.
The upcoming PHA Forum 2014, which takes place in Scottsdale, Arizona on Dec. 10 - 12, will give new and current PHA members an opportunity to connect face to face on important population health trends.
