Learning Objectives and Course Description
The content is focused on practical application and implementation of population health
management strategies, care coordination, patient engagement and activation, and
new innovations and technologies to support these efforts. The material in this training
program is purposely geared to appeal to a broad audience of individuals working in the

health requires a holistic approach and encompasses many perspectives.
