Data services to support Population Health Management, Care and Service Planning
We are developing data services to support a range of service and quality improvements. The South East London ICS data services will bring together important health and care information into a single place, organise that information and then make it available to appropriate health and care professionals and service leaders. This will support decision making in relation to people’s direct care, service design, transformation, overall population health and important research.
The current data services project, a collaborative between South East London, North West London, and North East London, is called the Discovery Data Service (DDS). This is overseen by a Collaborative Board made up of representatives from each ICS.
This collaboration helps to support a more joined up approach to information across multiple health and care organisations in London, supporting local and wider strategic objectives and improvements. This includes our collective efforts to support more proactive and preventative care, often called Population Health Management.
