Partnering with health systems, industry associations and think-tanks on projects that can benefit the healthcare industry as a whole is extremely exciting and rewarding. 3M’s newest partnership is with The Academy Huron Institute. I am pleased to announce that we will partner with The Academy in the newly-launched Population Health Management Infrastructure Collaborative.
A long-time member of The Academy, 3M, joins The Academy Huron Institute in undertaking a 9 month intensive collaborative for 10 health systems to more fully understand critical success factors and infrastructure for Population Health Management. In particular, the project will focus on the data, analytics, roles and positions required and characteristics of the environment that affect timing and progress.
The Academy membership spans the executive suite of the largest healthcare systems across the country. These health systems account for approximately 50% of the hospital net patient revenue in the country.
I look forward to communicating findings later in 2013!
