Population Health Management involves using the data we hold about our patients and communities and their health requirements to plan how we deliver the best, tailored care for our local population. As an approach, it uses data to design new ways of offering patients care proactively, before they need to go the NHS with a problem and helping them to improve their health and wellbeing preventatively.

This also involves making sure that all health and care staff in south east London have access to the information they need to make the best possible decisions for the people they care for and to support people to get more involved in their own care. The Coalition aims to do this by:

  • Raising awareness of population health management as a new way of working across south east London and its successes to date, including lessons learnt from the Wave 2 NHS England and Improvement (NHS E & I) Population Health Management Development Programme
  • Highlighting the benefits of population health management and why population health management should be adopted as a way to work;
  • Producing content that tells the story of establishing population health management as core way of working for the south east London operating model;
  • Promote services and tools being developed to enable population health management as a way of working.
