Submit That Report To Population Health Management: Here's Why

Have you created a novel care management program? Developed a unique approach to wellness? A groundbreaking approach to analytics? Performed a literature review with some new insights?

Have you already committed your findings to paper with tables and figures and, with some additional effort, could turn them into a real manuscript? Does the idea of sticking all that hard work on some shelf or letting it languish in the C-suite upstairs annoy you?

If you are in the C-suite, do you want to advance the career of some key employees?

If so, do you want to simultaneously advance the science of population-based care to the benefit of patients everywhere, hone your findings with rigorous and insightful peer review, contrast your evidence-based program with the take-our-word-for-it fluff of your competitors and bask in the envy of your colleagues and enemies?
