The University of Pennsylvania medical school is emphasizing population health and health equity through the appointment of former Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) CEO Dr. Risa Lavizzo-Mourey as lead professor. This comes “at a time an increasing number of colleges and universities are investing in the effort to move from fee-for-service medicine to population health where patients are getting the right care in the right place and at the right time.” Lavizzo-Mourey notes that working across professions and sectors, including those from the business, medical and health communities, is critical towards change, and made health quality a major initiative while at RWJF.

DCHI is working closely with the University of Delaware College of Health Sciences to implement similar workforce training for current and future health care workers, which includes education on the shift to value-based payment approaches, as well as a focus on population health.  Learn more about the Workforce & Education committee who is at the forefront of this initiative.
