Population Segmentation helps identify different health care needs within populations, enables tailored care models and the budgets to support them. This tactic has gained significant traction as a promising approach for turning sentiments into reality. But how do we do this in a way that is operationally practical?  In this talk, Dr. Matchar will discuss his work in developing and validating a scheme for population segmentation based on health and health-related social service needs and how he is applying this general framework to more systematically optimizing health services.  You won't want to miss it!
