Population health refers to not only the overall health of a population, but also the distribution of health. Healthcare built environments and community environments can be used to support effective population health management strategies such as establishing patient registries, monitoring cost and clinical metrics, engaging in risk management outreach, communicating with patients, educating patients, and coordinating effectively between care teams and patients.

March 2018 Webinar
This webinar will focus on an exploratory approach to the role of Evidence-Based Design in the rural healthcare setting.  Haddox will present the observations, conversations, participatory research methods, and thought processes that led him to explore how the delivery of healthcare in his largely rural native West Virginia might be improved through a focus on the physical facilities.  He will describe research projects that examine the barriers to care in these rural areas, including his approach to engaging stakeholders to gather data, some upcoming projects in the works with special healthcare needs populations, and a larger framework for interdisciplinary research in the rural health care setting.
