New Strategy and transformation

Strategy and transformation

NHS Digital, now part of the NHS England Transformation Directorate, designs, develops and operates the national IT and data services that support clinicians at work, help patients get the best care, and use data to improve health and care.

This report describes how analysts, teams, regions and national bodies can organise themselves to deliver strategic analysis, develop their analytical skills and provide opportunities to simplify career pathways for analysts, appreciate and utilise the full range of analytical possibilities at their disposal and connect with peers through networks.

This briefing identifies opportunities for local organisations and systems to make better use of health data, and recommends ways that national policy could promote the collaboration and greater use of analytics which underpin the ‘learning health system’ concept.
