Population Health is defined as strategies that link clinical and non-clinical approaches (such as housing or access to food) for improving the health of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group. These groups can be geographically defined (e.g., zip code or city) or they may share some characteristics (such as age or income level).
Helping Clinicians and Organizations Address the Social Determinants of Health To help clinicians address social determinants of health within a framework that maximizes their skills while helping organizations systemically approach these challenges, the AHA Physician Alliance has created a virtual expedition consisting of five modules. Built around the proactive concept of upstream care, the series was developed with Rishi Manchanda, M.D., M.P.H., president and CEO at HealthBegins, an organization dedicated to supporting and strengthening the work of frontline clinicians and community partners to improve care and address the social determinants of health.
