Leading the way forward in creating healthier, stronger communities

The definition of population health is continuing to evolve.

At VUMC, we are rewriting how healthcare organizations keep people healthy. We're shaping the path of healthcare through changes to what we do and changes to how we engage with our local communities.

At its core, Population Health is -

  • patient-centered, helping us deliver the kind of care we want for our familes and ourselves
  • holistic and supports the physical, mental, social and behavioral health needs, not just their illnesses 
  • proactive and preventive, identifying the health needs of patient populations 
  • focused on teamwork and coordinated efforts that includes each one of us to be successful
