About the Population Health Management programme

This programme has been developed to support analysts and other health and care professionals working in population health to build their knowledge and skills within this area. Population health management (PHM) is central to the development of and is a new focus of analytical work for analysts working across these partnerships.

Population health management (PHM) is an approach that uses data to help health and care systems to improve population health and wellbeing. 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 formally establish ICSs and will be pivotal to the way that the new systems will work together to improve the health of their populations.

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

2 new sessions have now been developed:

A practical run through of the methods needed to undertake risk stratification as part of a population health management approach

This session describes the concept of population health surveillance and how it can be used to identify and monitor threats to the health of the population, so that actions can be taken.

More information

On completion of these modules, health and care professionals will be able to describe the concepts of population health management and how it fits with current health policy. They will understand healthcare needs assessment and be able to describe sources of data that underpin population health need. They will also understand the concepts of population segmentation.
