This week Gregg Masters (@2healthguru) and I (@fsgoldstein), along with Doug Goldstein (@eFuturist) are announcing the launch of PopHealth Week. This is a weekly Internet radio podcast (typically broadcast at 12 pm Eastern each Wednesday) with an associated website at www.pophealthweek.com. We intend to focus on all things population health. Our shows will feature 1) people, topics, news and analysis as we will 2) present the broad spectrum of what is and is not population health and 3) how it fits into the changing health and healthcare landscape, what’s working, how and by whom.
Our first show this Wednesday, May 20 will feature David Nash, MD, MBA, the Founding and Current Dean of the Jefferson School of Population Health. This show will focus on Population Health and Population Medicine.
The last Wednesday show each month will feature a roundtable discussion of recent news. So join Gregg, Doug and me as we discuss what’s happening in population health on May 27.
Coming up in June:
Jennifer Drago, Executive Vice President of Population Health with Sun Health. Among her many jobs, Jennifer oversees the Care Transitions program which is a CMS Community-Based Care Transitions Program (CCTP), focusing on reducing readmissions, a major issue for hospitals, ACOs and other provider groups.
Kaveh Safavi, MD, Managing Director, Global Health, Industry Lead, Accenture. Discussing his thoughts on population health and where providers should be focusing early on.

Join Gregg , Doug and me as we monitor the pulse of the population health industry revealing its best practices and biggest challenges. We’ll help you sort out the ‘wheat from the chaff’ in this emerging space ripe with marketing claims while often light on documented use cases or outcomes efficacy.
More to come.
