The Population Health Center at Delmarva offers community partners – agencies, providers, schools and more – services and support to help them achieve excellence in population health.
We bridge the worlds of medical care and public health through population health services.
With health care reform there is a need for different strategies to achieve the Triple Aim of decreasing costs, increasing quality, and improving patient experience.
IOM report released March 2012 recognized that public health and primary care are so far apart that we may need a third entity to bridge the gap between the two sectors of health; DFMC is a bridge between the public and private health sectors.
