Thank you for listening to the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast! LIVE from St. Petersburg, Florida post the Graham Sessions, Dr. Eric Robertson joins me to discuss population health! Dr. Eric Robertson, the founder of PTThinkTank.com and PTCoop.org, is the Director of the Kaiser Permanente Physical Therapy Fellowship in Advanced Manual Therapy in Northern California, and Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at El Paso. He specializes in orthopaedic manual physical therapy, radiology, evidence-based practice, and the impact of technology on healthcare.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Population health: The management of total health across different groups and the life spectrum

-Why prevention should be a primary focus in healthcare

-How population health addresses important objectives such as health literacy, resource management and access to care

-And so much more!

 

Innovators in healthcare reduce costs and improve quality care by intervening before complex conditions arise. Eric notes, “When you look at groups and systems that focus on population health by and large they are almost always focused on prevention.”

 

Physical therapists should start to think beyond their traditional role in the healthcare system and treat patients as a whole and expand their realm of care. Eric believes physical therapists should, “Conceptualize yourself as a primary care provider.”

 

Management decisions in population health are aligned to “[help] the patient enable their own pathway to health.” Eric believes prioritizing patient self-efficacy leads to better treatment outcomes and cost reduction.
