Supporting the Jefferson School of Population Health
In an effort to generate innovative thinking and repeatable results that improve population health outcomes, the CI Validation Institute also recently donated $50,000 to the Jefferson School of Population Health at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia – the first designated School of Population Health in the United States.
“We think remote care management has immense potential to affect what happens outside of a doctor’s office and in the daily life of an individual, which is one of the biggest opportunities we have in improving the overall health of a population. This generous gift from the CI Validation Institute will be used to uncover and address the factors that might be limiting adoption of this valuable approach,” said David B. Nash, MD, MBA, founding dean of the Jefferson School of Population Health.
