SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Phytel, the leader in provider-led health improvement, announced today that Steve Schelhammer, CEO of Phytel, will make a presentation at the 30th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco on Thursday, Jan. 12, at 1:30 p.m. PST.
Schelhammer will focus on the automation of population health management, illustrating how it is key to improving the quality and lowering the cost of care as the industry moves from fee-for-service to value-based healthcare.

In addition, he will describe how healthcare organizations can use Phytel's services to make care managers more efficient and effective, engage patients more fully in their own care, and improve care transitions between hospital and ambulatory care.

"Leaders in today’s healthcare environment are recognizing the importance of automating population health management. Organizations that make optimal use of information technology to manage the health of all their patients will achieve the best outcomes at the lowest cost."
