Hospitals that are committed to a population health strategy should take five steps to address the strategic, cultural, technical, and structural challenges involved in such an effort: Adopt wellness as a strategic priority for the hospital. Challenge those responsible for community health to become more actively involved in actually improving the health of the population the hospital serves. Adopt a wellness philosophy and demonstrate to the community that the organization is committed to that philosophy. Leverage limited charitable resources by collaborating and partnering with community stakeholders. Integrate the agenda, policies, procedures, and systems of clinical care management, quality, and population health functions.
