New sessions added to Population Health Management elearning programme

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with NHS England and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID) to add 3 new sessions to the Population Health Management elearning programme.

The new sessions complement 5 existing modules in the programme, which is designed 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 3 elearning sessions that have recently been developed are:

  • Data visualisation – users will understand the principles of good data visualisation for charts and maps
  • Knowledge to action – supporting users to understand how to get data and evidence into the hands of decision makers through the K2A essentials toolkit
  • Health episode statistics – new users of the hospital episode statistics data set will be introduced to the functions and ways to interrogate the system within this module

The 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 judgments about restarting non-urgent elective care.

The PHM elearning 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 COVID-19 and thereafter.

For more information and to access the new sessions, please select the Population Health Management programme page.
