ReThink Health Financing Podcast Series: Practice Profiles

This 20-minute podcast features Jim Hester, a Public Health Institute board member and former acting director of the Population Health Models Groups at CMS’ Innovation Center, discussing innovations in funding population health. Acknowledging that, in most communities, funding sources typically have been limited to grants and other short-term financing mechanisms that support a single health improvement program, Hester discusses how some payers are experimenting with longer-term, more sustainable options to support a wider array of such programs.
