This is a unique opportunity to work within North West London ICB’s Population Health Management and Inequalities team. The successful candidate will help shape our approach to tackling health inequalities through expert analysis of bespoke NWL data and publicly available datasets that consider the wider determinants of health. We want to recruit a person who is passionate about using data to tell compelling stories for action, and who is intrinsically motivated to help address the unacceptable health disparities that exist in our population.
NWL ICS is fortunate to have the Whole Systems Integrated Care (WSIC) dataset, which links data around the whole person, building in data from multiple care settings. This linked, longitudinal dataset is used to support the delivery of direct care across the system, but also to support advanced and predictive population health analytics and a more integrated approach to care delivery to improve population health outcomes.
There is a system commitment to embed population health management (PHM) as a core enabler in the ICS’s strategy, in line with the ICS’s core objectives around improving population health and reducing inequalities. This role will enable the ICS to have a more in-depth understanding of the population health status of its communities, taking into account the wider determinants of health, and enable the ICS to target its resources to where they are most needed.
Main duties of the job
The role will focus on national, regional and ICS drivers for population health management and addressing inequalities i.e. intelligence function guidance released by NHSE.
You will be responsible for leading population health data analytics projects, taking a lead role in formulating data analysis needs, and interpreting, visualizing and communicating the outputs to various stakeholder groups with different needs.
You will take a leadership role in working with a wide range of stakeholders across the ICS, including senior analytics leads, particularly Local Authority/public health analysts/Borough based partnership analysts
You will provide expert advice and guidance on the potential for data within the ICS to support population health dashboards and reports which senior managers can use to plan and improve how the system supports local communities.
The role focuses on complex quantitative analysis and turning this analysis into tangible insights required to help stakeholders characterise the issues they face, the options they have, or to evaluate the impact of changes made. This requires the postholder to understand why analysis is being undertaken, how the outputs are intended to be used, as well as helping to define how we should undertake a particular method/analysis.
