Purpose: Population health is finally catching up with itself. Before it was known as disease management, it began at New England Medical Center in Boston, MA (now Tufts Medical Center), more than 30 years ago.


Implications for Case Management Practice: Take-away ideas: (1) population health management is about segmenting and targeting specific patient populations for interventions that are evidence based; (2) there are currently many examples of population health management; (3) population health management will not work without social workers and nurse navigators/care coordinators working side by side.


Primary Practice Setting: All health care settings.
