Improving the health of a population means providing optimal care for every individual

Orion Health’s Amadeus health information platform allows health and care professionals across the community to access appropriate patient information through a shared care record. The rich citizen data held within the shared care record forms the foundation for population health management. This is the data that can be unlocked to identify actionable insights into individuals, groups of individuals and the entire population that you serve.

Shared care record users can efficiently analyse vast data sets to identify at-risk patients and those in need of proactive intervention. These cohorts can then be managed through a variety of tools for care coordination and patient engagement, which can facilitate care pathways, care planning, virtual wards, remote patient monitoring and more.

With longer life expectancies meaning that more people are living with multiple long-term conditions and modern lifestyles increasing risk of disease, a population health strategy is essential to improve physical and mental health outcomes, promote wellbeing and reduce health inequalities.

We support the NHS Long Term Plan’s for organisations to increasingly move towards population health management and to better support people to stay healthy and avoid illness complications. 

By delving into the data for your population you can understand where to focus programmes for the most impact and efficient use of resources. It will give you the insight you need to deliver effective care management, especially for those who require intensive or long-term care. Your clinicians and care givers can then take the priority patient cohorts identified and utilise solutions for care planning, care pathways, virtual wards, patient engagement and more to ensure the best experience and outcomes.

By interrogating the health of your population over time, you can evaluate how your programmes are performing and use this insight to make adjustments.
