BiographyDr. Ferris was born in Worcester MA and educated at Middlebury College, Oxford University (M.Phil.), Harvard Medical School (MD), and Harvard School of Public Health (MPH). Particular clinical interests within primary care include medically complex patients, geriatrics, and respiratory and heart conditions. He conducts health policy research at the Mongan Institute for Health Policy and serves as the Medical Director of the Mass General Physicians Organization.
For decades, health care has been organized primarily around episodic interactions with individual patients. With population health management, however, care is organized around patients’ health needs regardless of whether they are seeking health care. The goal is better health for these patients as well as lower costs.
