UK policy organisation Public Policy Projects is today announcing a new partnership with AnalystX, a data-and-analytics-for-good-initiative that works to connect and empower the data and analytics community and leads the movement for data driven, evidence-based decision making across health and care. This initiative is a cross-public, private and third sector collaborative of over 50 organisations that was spearheaded and continues to be supported by teams within NHS England.
AnalystX will be working with PPP to host a set of interactive Data and Analytics sessions, which will take place at the Integrated Care Delivery Forum – a series of national conferences designed to explore regional challenges and opportunities in delivering integrated care.
AnalystX was established in the wake of Covid-19, when the NHS identified a clear need to enable the health service to collectively and collaboratively harness data-driven decision-making and to respond to future crises and broader health challenges more effectively. The AnalystX forum, hosted on the FutureNHS platform, was created as a means of connecting data professionals across the country, to share learning and identify new opportunities in data and analytics in health care. The community has since grown exponentially, and today consists of over 15,000 data and analytics professionals across health and social care.
The team behind AnalystX will be working with PPP’s Integrated Care Delivery Forum to bring the data community closer together with ICS leadership and local health and care stakeholders through a set of interactive sessions. These sessions will highlight data-driven case studies and help develop locally responsive data-driven health and care strategies. The workshops will consist of a series of interactive presentations and group discussions, featuring the foremost leaders in NHS data and analytics alongside local ICS leadership.
Commenting on the partnership, David Duffy, Head of Content for Public Policy Projects said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with AnalystX, whose vital work will only become more important as health systems brace for a data revolution in health and care.
“This strategic partnership will facilitate an exciting and interactive strand within the established Delivery Forum series, bringing the data community together with local ICS leadership and key health and care stakeholders to develop practical solutions to key health and care challenges.
“ICSs’ vision of implementing true population health management will only be realised if all corners of the sector come together to collaborate, share experiences and scale best practice. AnalystX will be able to use the Delivery Forum to share its knowledge with system leaders and on-the-ground deliverers of NHS care.”
Suki Panesar, Chief Evangelist at AnalystX, said: ‘‘AnalystX presents a new way of working through distributed leadership across the system agnostic or organisational affiliation and hierarchy. It harnesses the talent that exists in the data and analytics workforce and allows collaboration across boundaries to enable better patient care and citizen health through the lens of data and analytics. Working with PPP colleagues, AnalystX will be able to bring together learnings from ICSs and enable a thriving ecosystem of developing data and analytical assets once and sharing multiple times.’’
Dates for next year’s Integrated Care Delivery Forum series will be announced in the coming weeks, for further information on how to partner and sponsor the series, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
