What is Population Health Navigator (PHN)?
PHN is a new secure, web-based tool that has been selected by BUMED as the medical informatics tool to be utilized by Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs). In addition to assisting with population health and process improvement efforts, PHN allows MTFs to assess data quality, enrollment management, demand forecasting, utilization of services, and the quality of healthcare provided to beneficiary populations. PHN also serves as the centralized data source for reporting an MTF’s clinical performance in the annual BUMED Business Plan. The PHN transforms DoD and Network healthcare data into actionable information and identifies MTF TRICARE Prime enrollees in need of clinical preventive, disease management or case management services. PHN allows easy access to standardized metrics and predefined queries for 14 clinical preventive services, diseases and conditions. The modules include: asthma, beta-blocker use following myocardial infarction, cardiovascular risk factors, breast cancer screen
