Cerner Corporation is pleased to announce a new relationship with Hampshire and Isle of Wight (HIOW) health and care system to enable their population health management journey to transform the planning and delivery of health and care services across the region.
The initiative will see the implementation of Cerner’s population health management data platform, HealtheIntent ®, alongside HealtheEDW SM, a big data analytics solution. Together, these tools will provide frontline clinicians, public health teams, senior leaders, and service commissioners with a comprehensive view of their population’s health and care needs.
To achieve this, we will implement a population health management analytics framework that will enable data aggregation from multiple care providers within the local system. Data aggregation will then be followed by standardisation and normalisation processes, and the application of advanced intelligence to interrogate this data and deliver actionable insights to the care providers, patients and citizens.
Turning intelligence into interventions
By using these tools, professionals and clinicians from across the health and care system will be equipped to identify and prioritise opportunities to positively impact the health and wellbeing of their population. The tooling suite will enable teams to target at-risk populations; identify existing gaps in care, and evaluate the impact of investments and spend on their population’s outcomes.
The new relationship will not only provide the infrastructure for data aggregation and actionable insights – it will also provide transformation support for HIOW staff to make planned interventions derived from insights into their citizen’s health as well as adoption support to ensure technology uptake across relevant members of staff – ensuring real and sustainable change and helping them achieve the ambitions set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.
“This new capability will help us proactively support local people to live longer and healthier lives by providing the in-depth intelligence we need to reduce inequalities and better plan our services. It is a significant step in transforming the way we care for our population across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and we're excited to be embarking on this journey with Cerner,” said Maggie MacIsaac, chief executive for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care System.
Distie Profit, managing director for Cerner UK added:
“During the past five months we have all collectively witnessed, in one way or another, the incessant work and commitment of our NHS to get us through the pandemic. We have also been inspired by the amazing things and improvements that can be achieved when we all focus on a common objective.
“The delivery of this programme is set to become another example of true collaboration that will create actionable insights that will directly impact the way care is delivered for the nearly two million people in the region. We are proud to have been chosen to support the HIOW health and care system as they embark on their journey to provide proactive population health to their people.”
