The next few decades will see enormous opportunities for data to be used to understand patterns of ill health and
wellbeing, and to plan how services can be proactive to meet the needs of the population in the most effective and efficient way possible.
NHS and social care organisations from across Kent and Medway have come together to develop and deliver detailed plans for using analytics in how we plan and deliver care. We want to make sure that our health and care system is able to make the most of the opportunities to improve our services that good data use provides, as well as supporting patients and our communities in managing their own health needs.
Kent and Medway Analytics Strategy
The Kent and Medway Analytics Strategy sets out a roadmap for developing the effective use of analytics across the region. You can read our strategy overview here.
Our strategy requires a lot of detailed work to deliver. More details on what that work entails, and where we are with delivering it, will be available on this page shortly.
Keeping our plans on track – the Shared Healthcare Analytics Board (SHcAB)
To make sure that we stay on track with our plans, they will be monitored by a new group – the Shared Healthcare Analytics Board (SHcAB). The SHcAB will meet regularly to review progress, and consider any issues that might arise from our analytics work.
You can find details of the SHcAB meetings, including what was discussed and decided, on this page.
January 2020 Agenda
Listening to our patients, service users and communities
We want to make sure that our work reflects the needs and priorities of our communities. We are looking for people from across Kent and Medway to get involved in our work, and share their ideas about how we can develop the way that we use analytics in Kent and Medway, including how we can make them more accessible to our citizens and communities.
We will be sharing more information about how we are involving communities shortly, including how you can get involved. If you are interested in finding out more, and potentially participating, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details, and any specific issues that you are interested in.
