The terms population health and public health are typically used interchangeably. While the terms are very similar, they have slight differences. The two terminologies both focus on the general concept of making a set group of people healthy. The differences are in how the groups of individuals are defined. Though different, population health and public health overlap in the process of making people healthier. Over the past several decades, population health has become a focus of the healthcare community. With the recent implementation of the Affordable Care Act of 2010, there has been an emphasis in shifting towards population-based services. The Triple Aim specifically outlines three key areas of focus for healthcare organizations: increasing the health of a population, increasing the experience of care, and decreasing the per capita cost. With this push to deliver affordable and high quality care, The Children’s Institute has implemented a few initiatives. These initiatives focus on increasing the health of the population it serves, decreasing costs and increasing the level of care. The Children’s Institute has focused on the public health of children with complex medical conditions. This focus shows the public health relevance of this essay. So, their population can be defined as children with complex medical conditions around the world. Their goal is to help this subset of the public through interventions at their organization that focus on population health.
