Buyers Guide Population Health Platform

Health IT managers who have installed population health platforms in their organizations advise that you pay careful attention to these features before buying.

1. Dashboard. Is it flexible enough to display screens that can be customized to support the different perspectives of clinicians and administrators as they are working?
2. Workflow. Does it complement the workflow established by your EHR and provide guidance when it can be most effective?
3. Rules Engine. Can the system support delivery of evidence-based medical practice guidance at the point of care? And can it change rules as needed? 

It doesn’t stop there. Population health and other systems must be able to deal with socioeconomic data, determinants of health, precision medicine, and care coordination among provider organizations in geographical regions.
