A new report published today tells the story of population health management (PHM) approaches – led by clinical commissioners – across ten local areas, the benefits these approaches are bringing to patients and organisations, and the challenges that are being faced.
In their foreword, Dr Graham Jackson, chair of NHSCC, and Julie Wood, chief executive, remark that PHM involves “the navigation of complex issues” and “necessitates real, system-wide leadership”. They added that “clinical comissioners are often well placed to build the coalitions necessary for success … not least because these are organsiations with strong clinical leadership, embedded in real-world practice, close to local populations.”
Julie Das-Thompson, assistant director of policy and delivery, has written a blog about the report’s findings and implications, which you can read on NHS Voices.
