Population Health Management – what does it mean for primary care?
Published: 20 December, 2018
For the NHS to really improve wellbeing and prevent illness it needs to be working with local communities to draw all the organisations and groups together and find solutions that empower residents and tackle the causes of ill-health. This is what is meant by ‘population health’, and primary care, together with local community partners, is well placed to lead this kind of approach.
In his blog Dr Joe McManners, clinical advisor and GP partner at a large practice in Oxford, explains how, in Oxford, and other systems including Fylde Coast, part of Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria have started to work differently to address prevention at scale to break the cycles of poor health using local data and intelligence.
