Hospitals (or health systems) use population health to refer to the need to develop a tailored programme based on an understanding of the social determinants that influence patient care outside a hospital or clinic. These tailored programme interventions are designed to support both primary care and care transition post-hospital discharge by leveraging technology and external partners. Public health views population health as engaging in activities to support health promotion (e.g. physical activity, smoking cessation, eating fresh fruits and vegetables, etc.) for prevention and chronic care management. However, these activities tend to be broader in nature even if they are tailored by external partners to suit the needs of distinct population groups.
Public health 3.0 calls for public health agencies to develop a proactive community engagement strategy that uses policies tailored to address the health needs of distinct population groups. The strategy will recruit partners and leverage technologies to design practices to improve client adherence and health outcomes. In other words, population health in the digital age today is leading a shared goal of both public health agencies and health systems in looking for innovations to improve prevention and chronic care management. With the growing use of personalization tools, such as mobile apps, social media, and wearables, population health can focus on exploring new technology innovations as digital services to improve health outcomes of select population groups as well as the public at large.
