LOVELAND, Ohio, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Population Health Impact Institute (PHII), a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, will be offering a Methods Evaluation Process(TM) (MEP(TM)) Workshop on June 19th entitled "Giving Credit Where Credit is Due -- The Science and Art of Calculating Clinical and Financial Outcomes Based Upon the Methods Evaluation Process." This Workshop is taking place in conjunction with the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida.
Thomas Wilson, PhD, DrPH, PHII Founder and Board Chair, notes "Participants will learn the principles and standards behind credible, transparent, standardized, and replicable methods to evaluate the efficacy of population-based health management programs. The workshop will be led by nationally-known experts with backgrounds in population-based evaluation, case management, corporate wellness, medical practice and accreditation leadership, who have adopted the MEP approach."
Attendees will learn the tools and knowledge to build an evidence-based process to calculate clinical and financial outcomes of case management, disease management, and wellness and medical management programs. Participants will also learn about the MEP Accreditation Program, a unique program that focuses on the transparency and quality of the methodology behind claims for health and wellness programs.
Wilson adds "MEP provides purchasers, providers, payers and others with a peer-reviewed process to accredit the ROI or 'clinical effectiveness' attribution methods associated with population health programs. The MEP accreditation program makes these methods of attribution transparent, enabling one to make independent judgments regarding the cause-effect relationship between the health interventions and outcomes measures."
Continuing education credits will be offered. Attendees will receive a "MEP certificate of attendance," essential for those organizations interested in achieving MEP Accreditation.
Full CMSA conference attendees can attend at no additional charge, but must register for the workshop. For individuals who wish to attend the PHII workshop without attending the CMSA conference, the registration fee is $95.00.

The mission of the Population Health Impact Institute is "To promote credible, transparent, standardized, and replicable impact evaluations of defined population health management programs for public and private sector organizations through education, research and benchmarking services."
