DHI Market Analysis - In the third of a new series of analysis for Digital Health Intelligence subscribers, Lloyd Price examines the population health management market.
Population health management is currently experiencing a new wave of optimism fuelled by the potential of AI, machine learning and data visualisation to help clinicians risk stratify, budget, and ‘reach the hard to reach’ more effectively than ever before.
Previous waves of PHM have tended to focus on improving care delivery, collating and analysing data sets, balancing patient and workforce demands, and reducing costs for long term conditions, with limited success other than specific, targeted interventions for a small number of specialties.
The key driver of PHM in today’s operational environment is the shift in focus from ‘reactive care’ to ‘proactive prevention’. The new approach is to educate and engage patients earlier, reach deeper into local communities, and support those at risk and with more complex health needs.
This new wave of PHM enthusiasm and shift in focus should be fully supported, but it also requires a pragmatic approach to deliver real benefits and avoid previous pitfalls. The NHS will need to overcome a number of barriers related to data, workforce, structure, and funding to deliver value for patients, clinicians, and staff in the medium to long term.
