Coordinating Care in a Fragmented System: Population Health Management

This program has been pre-approved the The Commission for Case Manager Certification to provide continuing education credit to CCM® board certified case managers.  The course is approved for 39 CE contact hours.

Villanova is pleased to introduce a new continuing education course, Coordinating Care in a Fragmented System.  We have teamed up with The Geneia Institute to offer this course to give nurses and social workers the population health management skills they need to become effective care coordinators.  As you likely know, demand for skilled care coordinators has been increasing steadily as the number of accountable care organizations and patient-centered medical homes accelerates.  We expect the demand to continue, and likely grow in the coming years.

Because this is a new course, we are offering interested students the opportunity to learn more by attending one of two Virtual Open Houses on Tuesday, July 8th at 12:00 pm or Wednesday August 20th at 12:00 pm.  During the webinar, representatives from Villanova and The Geneia Institute will introduce the course, the major topics to be covered, and the faculty.  There also will time for your questions.  To attend the Virtual Open House, please visit:  The Geneia Institute and choose a Virtual Open House.

The course is designed to accommodate the schedules of working clinicians by combining in-person learning on Saturday, September 13th and Saturday, October 11th with online learning during the weeks in between classes.  Students who successfully complete the program can earn up to 39 contact hours.

Explore evolving models of care that require nurses and other health care personnel to practice in new ways that shift the focus from an episodic orientation to a population health model.  Gain the skills need to successfully function with accountable care organizations (ACOs), patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs), and other new modes of care delivery. These models are utilizing population health management methodologies to stratify and manage risk for patient populations, which requires a different set of clinical skills than traditional acute care.   This course is designed around three essential elements in population health management: managing high-risk patients, managing chronic illnesses, and managing transitions in care. Proficiencies required to achieve these goals include coaching, empowerment, motivating behavior change, advocacy, adult learning principles, measuring outcomes and continuous quality improvement. The course is being co-provided with The Geneia Institute.  It has been designed to include both live and online learning opportunities.  Live sessions are September 13th and October 11th.


September 13th begins a combination of two in-person meetings and five weeks of online learning
