The Institute of Medicine (IOM) just released the report, Population Health Implications of the Affordable Care Act summarizing the June 2013 workshop, which examined the impact of the Affordable Care Act on population health improvement. The workshop brought together stakeholders from the public and private sectors involved with health and health care delivery. In an effort to move outside of status quo understanding of population health, this report discusses three core issues:
- Supporting fruitful interaction between primary care and public health
- Strengthening governmental public health
- Exploring community action in transforming the conditions that influence the public’s health.
