“Implementing Population Health In The US: Lessons From Spain” published in Health Affairs blog

On July 9, 2019, Health Affairs published a blog post written by Roberto Nuño-Solinís, Stephen Shortell, Richard Scheffler, and Meg Kellogg. The post underscores strategies for better achieving population health in the US based off of the Basque region’s successful implementation of specific programs. These include consumer engagement, the development of IHOs, an emphasis on prevention, a broad-based integrated personal health record, and an effort toward cross-sector funding. The post concludes that “these are important lessons for the US, but ongoing evaluation of population health initiatives in all countries is needed to enhance the learning that can contribute to better health.”
