System architecture and financial management

  • Podcast: Aligning health with economic growth. Michael Wood, Head of Health Economic Partnerships at NHS Confederation leads a discussion with colleagues in Dorset integrated care system (ICS) about how place-based partnership working, particularly between the ICSs, Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP), universities and others can be of enormous benefit to a system and its population and why forging those relationships should be seen as essential.

Population health

  • Podcast: Identifying people at high risk of diabetes. In the Wokingham North area diabetes patients came out unusually expensive with high needs compared to patients in other similarly affluent areas. Data analysts were able to break down the data to individual GP practices and by speaking with the other GPs and nurses Dr Dan Alton at Wargrave surgery narrowed a list of 75 initial patients down to ten who needed to be offered something new.
