Population Health Management

Transform health outcomes in your area through expert population health management consulting

Population Health Management (PHM) is an integral part of national NHS policy and local ICS strategies, and with good reason – this powerful approach can transform health outcomes whilst targeting resources at where they are most needed. Increasingly, health systems are embracing such preventative healthcare, using data-informed strategies to ensure local people stay healthier for longer and to reduce health inequalities.

To achieve success in this area, today’s healthcare leaders must confidently leverage population health data, through digitised services and integrated data tools. The creation of seamless care interventions across the patient journey is crucial, coupled with the capability to monitor services, assess risk, and forecast outcomes. This work must happen collaboratively, with the system working as a whole, rather than in organisational or care setting silos.

Our approach

Our expertise in healthcare consulting and data innovation, combined with unrivalled access to UK healthcare data, uniquely positions us to provide PHM advice. We have a clear understanding of what is needed to support this approach at system, place and neighbourhood levels, from strategic planning and data infrastructure through to local implementation. Our work focuses on close collaboration with stakeholders, seeking to co-develop solutions and enable local knowledge transfer and skills building. This ensures your PHM strategies are not only data-informed, focusing on understanding opportunity and highest return on investment, but also locally relevant and sustainable.
