Population health is defined as “the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group.” The group may be characterized based on geography or by other identifying characteristics such as a common employer, ethnicity, or insurance provider. The health outcomes of these groups are relevant to policymakers in both the public and private sectors.

The Georgia Health Policy Center (GHPC) works to fulfill its mission of improving health status at the community level by evaluating systemwide factors impeding or facilitating improvements in population health and innovating new approaches to finance and positively impact population health.

Population health includes not just measures of health outcomes, but also a community’s well-being. GHPC partners with public agencies and private organizations to help local communities better understand the health of their population by assessing current needs, facilitating strategic planning of programs and financing mechanisms that will enable health-promoting initiatives, and implementing sustainable actions.
