Adam Steventon Director of Data Analytics

Data analytics team | Directors' team


Adam is responsible for developing and leading our Data Analytics for Better Health strategy, which aims to ensure that everybody in the UK benefits from advances in analytics and data-driven technologies such as artificial intelligence.  

Since joining the Health Foundation in 2014, Adam has established an innovative team that uses data to tackle pressing problems affecting the health of the UK. Together we produce open-source tools and approaches that can be used by others, and champion better analytics across the health and social care system. We also design and deliver large-scale initiatives that use data to improve health, such as the Networked Data Lab and Improvement Analytics Unit. Our research and analysis regularly informs national policy, and we share what we know about how to maximise the benefit of health data and data-driven technologies. 

Before joining the Health Foundation, Adam was a senior analyst at the Nuffield Trust where he led some of the first projects that brought together health and social care data in the UK. He was a Harkness Fellow in Health Care Policy and Practice at Yale University in 2013, where he examined the use of technology to improve care for people with heart failure. Between 2004 and 2008, the economic modelling Adam produced at the Pensions Policy Institute informed the development of the pensions legislation. Adam studied mathematics at Cambridge University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has a PhD in health services research from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
