Funding and championing data analytics

We support data analytics in health and social care to help improve the quality of care


Making sense of health care data has the potential to shape improvements to NHS services. But we’re only starting to see the difference that can be made by using insights to improve quality of care. 

We champion the analysts and their techniques directly through our funded programme, Advancing Applied Analytics. We’re seeing the development of exciting projects that show ways to improve analytic capability and share learning across networks of researchers.

Growing communities of analysts is a priority for us and so we’re funding important networks that can help connect researchers to share learning, insights and experience.
