The term “population health” seems to mean many different things to different people. For providers, a population may mean their panel of patients. For health plans and insurers, it is often their enrollees. For hospitals, it may be patients and the surrounding community. For advocates, it might be a particular disease group or demographic group. From the public health perspective, it can mean everything from a community to a county to a state to the whole country. - See more at: http://altarum.org/health-policy-blog/what-is-population-health?utm_source=&utm_medium=&utm_campaign=#sthash.IpOYNH2p.dpuf
