NHS England

Our health and care needs today are different from those the current health and care system was designed to address and so we must adapt to these changes. NHS organisations and local councils in England are joining forces to integrate services and to invest in ways to prevent illness and keep people out of hospital. Their aim is for people to live healthier lives and get the care and treatment they need, in the right place, at the right time.

Visit the NHS England team to hear more about integrated care systems, find resources and case studies, and chat through what population health management means for systems and local communities – including how we are working together with local government to deliver on the commitments made in the NHS Long Term Plan.

Vision

Vision is intelligent healthcare software that enables nimble, collaborative working across the healthcare landscape. It uses innovative technologies to think ahead and predict your next move. That means less keystrokes and fewer mouse clicks. So you can focus on your patients instead of your computer. Be one step ahead, wherever you are with intelligent healthcare software from Vision.

3M

Data is the foundation of everything we do within 3M Health Information Systems– we enhance healthcare data so it becomes the fuel for the engine that drives system change and performance improvement. We gather, enhance, and risk adjust healthcare data from a variety of clinical sources. Our team extracts insights from enhanced data that become opportunities for system improvement, ranging from new payment models to clinician performance improvement. We partner with our clients to implement the steps that will ensure success and measure performance over time. Our approach to helping our clients move the healthcare delivery and payment system from volume to value has proven to be scalable and sustainable over time. We have the expertise to support multiple terminologies classification schemes and languages, operating in over 200 countries and working with more than 10,000 clients.

The journey to integrated care starts with accurate clinical data.

The King's Fund

The King’s Fund’s vision for population health has put the spotlight on the importance of improving population health. But what does improving population health actually mean? And who is responsible for what?

Click here for our long read on this area

The King’s Fund is an independent charity working to improve health and care in England.

Our mission describes how we will achieve this:
  • through our research and policy analysis
  • through the work we do with individuals, organisations and communities building their capability, supporting them to adopt best practice and share learning
  • by bringing people together through events and networks to discuss and learn from evidence from the United Kingdom and across the world
  • by promoting greater understanding of health and care policy and practice – helping people to make sense of a complex and rapidly changing environment.
