Episode 37: Making a Broad Impact Through Population Health

To solve some of the thornier problems in healthcare—challenges like providing access, combating misinformation, and ensuring equitable outcomes—we need data.

That’s where population health comes into play. It’s a science that combines clinical care with data to improve the care of large swaths of people all at once.

Dr. Chirag Patel, Vice President Population Health at Centene, joins the show to explain the impact population health is having on a variety of areas. Plus, we chat about other hot topics in healthcare.

We discuss:

  • The practice and impact of population health
  • Making a difference in women’s health and medicaid
  • The challenge of labor shortages and access to healthcare
  • How individuals can make an impact in healthcare
