The Population Health Management (PHM) Analyst Development Programme will introduce analysts from the Midlands CCGs, NHS Trusts, CSUs, Local Authorities and national bodies (NHSE&I; PHE) to the concepts of PHM. It will equip them with the conceptual frameworks, knowledge and skills required to play a central role in the development and deployment of PHM within STPs/ICS.

This will be led by Professor Mohammed A Mohammed and Steven Wyatt with subject matter experts contributing throughout.

The analysts programme comprises a 1-day launch event (9th July 2019), followed by five 1-day workshops on:

  • 3rd September: Needs assessment and opportunity analysis
  • 8th October: Impact assessment and evaluation
  • 12th November: Risk prediction and population segmentation
  • 10th December: An introduction to actuarial modelling
  • 14th January: Problem structuring and communicating analytical results

In addition, there will be a sixth workshop, focused on the STAR (Socio-Technical Allocation of Resources) method which will be jointly attended by analysts and the STP Core Team members. Please see draft programme details below.

The programme will run alongside the Core Team element of the Academy (click here for a webinar overview of the core programme). We anticipate that the lead STP analyst will attend both the Core Team and the analyst development programme and coordinate the attendance and participation of analysts from within their STP. Whilst the STP lead analysts will ideally be expected to attend all sessions, other analysts will be invited to attend on a session-by-session basis, according to their role, interests and prior knowledge. 

The sessions will be scaled to allow up to 80 people to attend the launch event and 40-50 analysts to attend each of the subsequent workshops. Attendees may be asked to undertake some pre-workshop learning in the form of reading / reviewing on-line materials.

Registration for the sessions will be via Eventbrite, we will ensure each STP has the opportunity to nominate analysts to attend each session, this should be done via the STP lead. 

At the end of each session, participants will be able to use the workshop venue for informal networking with their colleagues and peers.

We will evaluate each session and the overall programme through participant and stakeholder feedback.
