Graduate Medical Education Population Health Learning Network

January 2018 – June 2018

America’s Essential Hospitals, proudly announces a new member benefit: a learning network to help residency program faculty add or enhance content on social determinants of health in graduate medical education (GME) curriculum. Through a series of series of webinars and associated pre-work over the network’s six-month span—up to three hours time commitment per month—our new GME Population Health Learning Network will cover:

  • creating a shared aim for improving population health;
  • identifying community, educational, and faculty resources;
  • designing curriculum and practical learning opportunities for residents;
  • overcoming barriers (e.g., competing demands, perceived lack of relevance to clinical care); and
  • managing and improving your program.

We invite members of your hospital’s residency training program team—designated institutional officials, residency program directors, managers, core faculty, and others—to register by Jan. 5, 2018, to participate in this new network.

Population Health Leaders Learning Network

September 2017 – May 2018

Through a series of in-depth distance learning opportunities and associated pre-work, population health leaders at essential hospitals will learn, obtain tools, and share how to:

  • build a foundation for population health;
  • assemble and align essential resources; and
  • implement community-integrated health care.

This opportunity will allow staff charged with exploring community partnerships and the social needs that influence health to learn from and share experiences with other population health leaders from essential hospitals. Participants will identify and work toward goals for addressing social determinants of health in their hospitals’ communities.

Registration for the Population Health Leaders Learning Network is now closed. If you are a member of the network, you can log in here.

VITAL2018 Preconference Workshop: Health Information Technology Strategies for Population Health

Health information and data are foundational components of population health improvement activities. Essential hospitals undertaking this work rely heavily on data and HIT systems to understand the impact of social determinants of health on patients and communities, to implement and coordinate efforts, and to measure and evaluate progress. This half-day workshop for population health leaders will explore these topics, including relevant tools and resources, and provide a setting for essential hospitals to learn from each other as well as from experts in the field.
