Introducing Point Of Maximum Leverage (POML)
The Level of opportunities for impactful interventions at which a fixed number of health management dollars are the most efficiently allocated to provide the maximum benefits to population health.
Acting from this point unifies the goals of improving population health outcomes while lowering costs. The goal is to maximize health given a (relatively) fixed level of resources.
Providers feel overwhelmed with all the things that could be done in population health.
We simplify the process,
We start with “Just do One Thing“
The Point of Maximum Leverage, at the limit, is actually ONE MEMBER and ONE ACTIONABLE RISK FACTOR.
A more practical and impactful POML is a small cohort of the membership (<1%), where only one action is taken (e.g., reduce blood pressure), which represents the greatest possible outcome for the least possible effort.
