• This programme is now closed for applications.
  • Advancing Applied Analytics is a new programme aimed at improving analytical capability in support of health and care services.
  • We have £400,000 of funding to support six project teams across the UK over 15 months.
  • The programme closed for applications on 25 July 2017.

Good quality analysis and the ability to use information effectively is an essential element in any learning health care system. Analysis can help shape care for individual patients as well as informing decisions for services or across organisations and health systems.

The Health Foundation’s new Advancing Applied Analytics programme aims to improve analytical capability in support of health and care services.

We are looking to support analysts who are working on local innovative and ambitious projects that can demonstrate how they will improve analytical capability in support of health and care services and provide lessons for the wider care system. 

We have £400,000 of funding to support up to six good quality projects that:

  • improve analytical capability and can show how this will support better care in the future
  • are led by a local/regional NHS or social care provider or commissioning organisation including local authorities, though partnerships with other groups and sectors are welcome
  • could benefit from funding of up to £100,000 per project for a maximum duration of 15 months.

We are not focusing on specific themes but are willing to consider applications from a broad range of areas, provided these can demonstrate improvements in analytical capability. We are especially interested in projects that address the capability deficiencies we identified in our recent report Understanding analytical capability in health care. For example:

  • better understand and structure the problems faced by managers/clinicians 
  • access and understand the evidence and information that can be brought to bear on a problem
  • apply appropriate and robust methods to manipulate information and data
  • communicate findings accurately and clearly.

Hi
I have tried starting an application on AIMS but there doesn't seem to be an option for this programme?
Kind regards

Hello,

I've had the same issue - the programme doesn't appear to be listed when applying on behalf of an organisation

Thanks

Hi Holly and Greg,

This programme is aimed at helping health and social care organisations. You will need to apply on behalf of an organisation. When registering for the first time, please tick the ‘Register with Organisation’ box and when you are directed to the AIMS home page, register with the details of the organisation via the ‘Contacts’ tab. Otherwise, you will not be able to apply on behalf of the organisation.
Please read the 'Notes to applications' attachment on this page for further details on what organisations can apply.
Best wishes,
Clara

Hi I could not register as a London Council even though this application is open to the Local Authorities - what is the process for this?

Thanks



Clara Morrish



Hi Hiten,
Thank you for contacting the Health Foundation about this. I have passed on your query to the programme team via applied.analytics@health.org.uk who will be in contact with you on email.
Best wishes,

The statement in the guidance notes doesn't really explain clearly what the expectations of the Health Foundation are in regards to intellectual properly:

"Any intellectual property generated from the Health Foundation’s funding will be owned by the organisations delivering the project, but must be licensed to the Health Foundation to support its charitable objectives."

Much of our existing background IP in tools etc would be used in the project and we would be applying to extend the capability of these tools to deliver the types of analytics suggested, and more importantly make them available for use by our healthcare partners. Whilst we would obviously share the operational outcomes of the work and the methodologies developed the actuals tools might well be part of a larger suite which would not be made available at the end of the project.
Would this mean our application is not viable given the statement above?

Hi Clara,
has there been any progress on this as the portal still doesn't allow you to see this project or show what information you require. as the deadline is only 2 working days away I'm a little concerned I may miss the deadline for the requirements.

Many thanks,

Lianne



Rob



Hi. Can you please confirm that the deadline for this application os at midnight tonight (25th) and not midday today? Many Thanks, Rob
