Population health management, broadly defined, is an integrated approach to improve the health of an entire population by targeting the systems and policies that affect health care quality, access, and outcomes. From a clinical psychology perspective, population health involves clinical applications and interventions targeted at an entire patient population rather than individual patients.

The traditional practice of clinical psychology in medical settings has targeted the assessment and treatment of individual patients most often seen for one-on-one counseling. Decades of applied clinical research has resulted in the development of evidence-based cognitive-behavioral interventions for psychological, medical, and dental conditions that can be delivered by clinical psychologists. Indeed, the largest effect sizes and greatest improvements in clinical symptoms can most often be obtained using these empirically supported treatments delivered to individual patients.

For a variety of reasons, however, it is only a minority of patients who have access to and benefit from these cognitive-behavioral therapies. Less intensive clinical interventions delivered to an entire population of health care beneficiaries have the potential to have an even greater impact on the overall patient population than more effective treatments delivered to a small percentage of patients.

Population health interventions arc often integrated into standard clinical settings, with a shift in emphasis from individual patients with identified disorders or diseases to a larger target population. One example is the routine screening of all patients for tobacco use in a family medicine clinic followed by a brief intervention or referral for care. Brief interventions can be provided by a variety of health care professionals.

One of the best models for brief interventions in medical settings is the use of psychologists serving as behavioral health consultants within an integrated primary care clinic. Other population health interventions can be linked to the health care system but delivered outside of the medical setting, often through information technology approaches that arc alternatives to lacc-to-lacc therapy. These approaches capitalize on recent advances in technology and social networking by using multimedia tools such as tclchcalth, the Internet, and digital video devices….
