The Health Foundation has selected 10 projects to take part in the third round of its Advancing Applied Analytics programme – which aims to improve analytical capability in support of health and care services.

Each of the projects involve analysts working on innovative, sustainable ideas that will demonstrate the value of analytics in improving health and care. The projects will provide lessons for the wider health and care system, with ideas that can be replicated in other areas or specialisms. 

The Advancing Applied Analytics programme is part of the Health Foundation’s work on data analytics and follows on from our report, Understanding analytical capability in health care, which highlights that good quality analysis and the ability to use information effectively is an essential element in any health care system. The projects chosen to be part of the first round have recently come to an end, with final reports being compiled. The projects from round two are up and running.

The third round projects are from a range of care providers and commissioners from across the UK. In particular, for this round, we have focused on projects will that help senior managers and clinicians understand the value of better analytics, for example using innovative approaches to engage senior staff in data analytics.

Each project will run for up to 15 months and each project team will receive up to £75,000 of funding to support the implementation, evaluation and dissemination of findings from their work. The projects will each start by September 2019.

The selection of these projects is currently subject to contracts being finalised with the lead organisation of each project.

The projects are:
