National Population Health Management Development Programme
In 2019 Suffolk and North East Essex became part of the national PHM Development Programme coordinated by NHS England and NHS Improvement. The programme will support us as a system to improve health outcomes for selected local population cohorts through the real-time application of advanced analytics and intelligence-led care design. Our ambition is that through the programme we build collective capability across our whole system – commissioners, providers, PCNs and community partners – to make informed data-driven decisions that enable teams to act together (across the NHS, local authorities, public services, VCSE, communities, and local people) to make best use of collective resource to achieve practical and tangible improvements in the health and wellbeing of our local communities.
Many People need support with issues that affect their physical and mental health
Solutions are often already available through, or better designed with, local people, the local council or a voluntary organisation. Better partnership working using PHM to join up the right person with the right care solution will help improve outcomes, reduce duplication and use our resources more effectively.
- For frontline staff the PHM approach enables care and support to be designed and delivered to meet individual needs, it means less duplication and a reduction in workload pressures as it ensures the right care is given at the right time by the right person.
- For NHS and local government commissioners, greater understanding of the local population will ensure they can better predict what residents need and ensure health and care providers work together.
