New Population Health Management e-learning programme now live

Alex Drinkall, 13 August 2020
Population Health Management

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with NHS England and NHS Improvement and Public Health England to develop an e-learning programme to support analysts and other health and care professionals working in population health to build their knowledge and skills within the area of population health management (PHM).

The e-learning modules that have been developed are:

  • Introduction to population health management.

An introduction to population health management – what it is, why it’s important and what you need to get started

  • Assessing needs

This session describes the main stages in the process to assess needs of a population.

  • A practical introduction to population segmentation

The population segmentation module will give users a practical guide to applying population segmentation within a population health management context.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) response to date has highlighted the pivotal role of PHM, with primary and secondary care providers needing to risk stratify and proactively support key population groups with personalised care models. PHM will become increasingly important as systems move to the reset phase where they will need the appropriate insights to make judgements about restarting non-urgent elective care.

The PHM e-learning modules introduce the PHM approach as well as the role of needs assessment and segmentation, providing a useful grounding to support colleagues in their endeavour to support population health during Coronavirus (COVID-19) and thereafter.
