What does population health management mean for the NHS, for patients, and for industry? How will the NHS translate population health management into impactful service change and what will this look like for patients?
In our webinar on Friday 4th March, Tom Clarke (Director, Mtech Access) explored all this and more with Dr Steven Laitner (GP, Parkbury House Surgery).
In this #WhispersWordsofWisdom webinar, we explore what population health means to the NHS. Steven and Tom discuss what the move towards population health means for primary care and how it differs from past initiatives – and ask: is it just another term for public health?
Steven and Tom explore how the NHS can translate the theory of population health management into practical service changes that improve care for patients. They consider the role data will play, the challenges of limited data and whether a busy and tired health service can utilise population health data effectively.
They also consider where and how Pharmaceutical and Medtech companies can support the NHS with population health management and service improvement.
Dr Steven Laitner is a GP with a public health and clinical leadership background. Whilst still in practice part time, he also runs his own consultancy company, Programmes for Health, which supports a range of healthcare commissioning and provider organisations. Steven was one of the original architects of the Accountable Lead Provider model whilst working at the Department of Health, where he was also National Clinical Lead for Shared Decision Making. He is currently supporting a range of organisations on developing accountable, integrated, programmes of care.
We are delighted to welcome Steven to the Whispers’ Words of Wisdom webinar series.
This webinar forms part of our monthly Whispers’ Words of Wisdom series, that sees our UK market access team have in-depth, comprehensive conversations with senior colleagues from the NHS. We explore what their immediate priorities are, what they see as the greatest challenges currently faced by the NHS, and how the NHS might respond to these challenges.
