What is Population Management?

SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions has released its white paper on Population Management In Community Mental Health Center-Based Health Homes. CRI’s Christina VanRegenmorter, MSW, had the privilege of co-authoring the white paper with Joseph John Parks III, MD, with the Missouri Institute of Mental Health & University of Missouri–St. Louis. Dr. Parks is a national leader in the mental health field and, while head of the National Association of State Medicaid and Mental Health Directors in 2001, was the primary author of the paper alerting the field that persons with serious mental illness served by Medicaid agencies were dying 25 years younger than their peers. The white paper lays a foundation for understanding the scope and principles of population management in addition to a step-by-step process about how to implement this necessary component to quality health care as well as offers a detailed explanation of the six services required for health homes.
