2017 Population Health Summit
March 29, 2017 - March 30, 2017
The annual population health summit of Virginia aims to utilize a population health framework to address the relationships between complex factors impacting wellness including socioeconomic, cultural, policy, regional and familial structures. The summit serves as a forum for collaboration among a wide array of stakeholders with the goals of sharing of ideas and best practices, and creating a team approach in improving the health and well being of Virginia. The focus of this year’s summit will be how to best identify, understand and utilize data to better coordinate and implement care. In an effort to foster the implementation of population health thinking, we are using the opioid epidemic in Virginia as a case study to provide real-world examples of how to leverage data in order to solve a real population health problem.
