Our purpose in writing this article is to highlight how Population Health Management (PHM) strategies apply to and integrate with the lives of people over the age of 50, applying our framework for supporting healthy lives.

According to the Population Health Alliance, “Engagement in health is when an individual performs sustained actions towards achieving optimal health and well-being.” Recently, PHA convened a group of thought leaders to identify how technology can drive engagement in health and the types of technology that are enhancing our reach and impact as we work to engage individuals in their health and healthcare. This paper outlines the types of technologies which may be used to support population health programs, provide guidance on how technology may be incorporated into an overall engagement strategy, identify ways to measure engagement using these tools, and list the practical considerations when incorporating technology into your engagement strategy.
