Improving population health will be key to helping the NHS moderate and meet demand over the next few years. Yet, it is often a challenge for NHS organisations to have much impact in this area – often because they do not know who they need to target.

In a data heavy environment, it can still be hard to deliver the benefits potentially offered by the massive amount of information the NHS collects. The Federated Data Platform, for example, does not include information from primary care.

This HSJ webinar, in association with Snowflake, will look at a real life example of data being used to drive improvements which could have both long-term and short-term benefits for the NHS and the populations it serves. It will focus on the sharing of data across Greater Manchester, including with primary care.

It will ask:

  • How important is it to make data available to those closest to the patient?
  • How can “unstructured data” – such as clinical notes – be used to improve patient care?
  • How can the data enable GPs to improve care for groups of patients such as those waiting for hospital appointments or treatment?
  • How could other NHS organisations adopt the same approach for waiting lists as Greater Manchester?
