Excelling in Engagement 

Powerful PHM Strategies 

Tech Touch: Strategies for Apps in Health

Attendees of the PHA Forum 2014 educational sessions will gain clear insights into innovative wellness and care management programs, and concrete takeaways that will help them implement, evaluate, and improve their own programs.

The four concurrent educational sessions tracks focus on implementation of population health models and strategies from development to delivery. Stakeholders along the continuum of care will take home the tools needed to improve outcomes, demonstrate value and increase quality of care and service.
