The first of five systemwide Action Learning Sets (ALS) will begin on Monday 29 November, bringing leaders and colleagues from across our Integrated Care System together with analytics and finance experts, and Primary Care Network (PCN) teams (including primary care, community, social care, public health, secondary care and the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector).

The population health management approach uses data and predictive analytics to identify needs, join up services and deliver proactive personalised care for people in complex at-risk groups. This puts the population at the heart of transformation efforts and supports integrated teams to build consensus on how best to maximise use of local resources and assets to have the biggest impact on health outcomes.

The purpose of the ALS sessions will be to bring colleagues together to share knowledge and create a peer learning community for PHM within Northamptonshire’s health and care system.

These system-wide sessions will be accompanied by six further ALS delivered at ‘place’ level (aligned to our new unitary council boundaries) within West Northamptonshire. With support from dedicated analytics and subject matter facilitation, these sessions aim to enable health and care colleagues to locally develop an integrated solution for people in the community who are at risk of falls, while also exploring innovative finance and contracting models to support PHM-based care.

Additionally, the four PCNs involved in the programme (MMWF, MWEB, Red Kite and Grand Union) will each go through six ALS. Here, PCN teams will come together to design and implement new data-informed interventions for targeted population cohorts. And in seven further ALS, the focus will be on bringing analytically aligned colleagues together to share knowledge and create a peer learning community for PHM analysts.

Watch out for further updates in future editions of Partnership Update as these sessions progress.
