Population health takes a broad view that looks beyond a group of patients or clients in a practice setting and considers a group of people in a similar geographical area or those with a similar disease or health needs. It is described as a bridge between healthcare and public health, representing elements of each area and providing opportunities to use the skills of health professionals in both. This module discusses what population health is and explains the role that certified medical assistants have in population health.


The goal of this population health continuing education program is to discuss what population health is, who population-health interventions reach, and what role the healthcare team plays in population health. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe population health and how it fits into healthcare delivery and reform
