A key element in new value-based care models, and payment reform in general, population health management (PHM) has been one of the primary buzzwords in the industry for the past few years. Now that it has moved beyond merely a discussion topic, we at Chilmark Research determined it was time to examine some of the models that have been in actual practice long enough to see real results from these efforts. It was with this in mind that we decided our next PHM Insight Report should examine three different approaches that have been taken by healthcare organizations to manage full populations of patients. The PHM case studies featured in this report are:
- Trenton Health Team, Trenton, NJ – rely on single PHM vendor
- Partners Healthcare, Boston, MA – broad PHM technology portfolio approach
- Marshfield Clinical Health System, Marshfield, WI – proprietary platform
In this webinar, we will be focusing on one of those case studies, the Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) and their technology business, MCIS, Inc. In 1971, the organization offered its first health plan, creating one of the early models for an HMO. This means they bring decades of experience to both managing risk, and providing care, and building the supporting technology infrastructure. As such, we feel many stakeholders in the industry could learn from their historical efforts in this field.
Jennifer Rogers, lead PHM analyst for Chilmark Research, will be joined by two senior MCHS/MCIS representatives to discuss this topic and field questions from the audience. Becky S. Birchmeier, RN, MS-Nursing, Director of Care Management and Value-Based Care, will provide history and background on Marshfield Clinic’s clinical and business strategy and PHM model. She will be joined by Kate Konitzer, MS, Chief Informatics Architect of MCIS, who will help us understand the PHM technology approach that Marshfield Clinic has taken on their PHM journey.

While this webinar dives into one particular case study, the report itself includes the two additional case studies mentioned above, as well as provides conclusions and recommendations based on additional primary and secondary research.
