Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital Puts New Focus on Population Health to Improve Health and Reduce Illness in Kids
Date:8/11/2018

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital will make a broader commitment to ensuring the health and wellness of children in the region by utilizing a population health perspective on care. At its core, this perspective focuses on ways to improve health outcomes of a population by ensuring families are being treated at the right facility or setting at the right cost. Mark Douglas "Doug" Baker, M.D., will focus on this initiative and joins Johns Hopkins All Children’s as chief of population health and assistant dean for Johns Hopkins All Children's faculty.

“We are focused on value over volume and want to enhance the kind of care we deliver to our families,” said Jonathan Ellen, M.D., president and vice dean at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. “We already have multiple venues of care throughout our outpatient care centers and across the region at affiliate hospitals. We’re also working with government agencies, lawmakers and other community entities. Now, Dr. Baker will help us look at all aspects of care for kids, specifically focusing on resources needed and how our health system can collaborate with others to help improve health conditions, such as asthma and diabetes, that affect large populations of children in our community and beyond.”

Dr. Baker is a professor of pediatrics for the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and recognized internationally for his research into the management of fever in infants. Before transferring to Johns Hopkins All Children’s, he served as director of pediatric emergency medicine and vice chair of community outreach at Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore. Dr. Baker earned his medical degree at Temple University School of Medicine and completed his pediatric residency as chief resident at Children's National Medical Center. He trained in neonatology at the Milton Hershey Medical Center and in pediatric emergency medicine at Children's Hospital Boston.
