"Population Health Models for Older Adults: Challenge of Care Fragmentation"

Julie P.W. Bynum, MD, MPH is Associate Professor of Medicine at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. Dr. Bynum’s work is focused on healthcare delivery for an aging population. Dr. Bynum has been a Robert Wood Johnson Physician Faculty Scholar and a National Institute of Aging Beeson Scholar to study quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery to high-risk elderly. One of Dr. Bynum’s contributions to the field has been to develop a method of creating “virtual” physician-hospital networks that were used in the conceptual development of the Accountable Care Organization legislation. She continued her policy-relevant efforts as a 2011-2013 Health & Aging Policy Fellow funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies and as a member of the Institute of Medicine Committee that published “Vital Signs: Core Metrics for Health and Health Care Progress.” She also is the lead author on a Dartmouth Atlas report titled, “Our Parents, Ourselves: Healthcare for an Aging Population.” Her active NIH-funded research program covers areas related to aging populations including: “Optimizing Osteoporotic Fracture Care Outcomes”; “Efficiency of Care for High Cost High Need Medicare Beneficiaries”; and “Cognitive Decline Relationship with Healthcare Costs and Hospitalization Risk” as well as other studies.
