Harnessing the untapped potential of health and care data


The Health Foundation has published a new report "Untapped potential: Investing in health and care data analytics."

The health and care system generates a huge amount of data and making better use of this growing mountain of information has the potential to improve care and how services are run. Yet it is failing to make the most of its data because there aren't enough people with the right analytical skills to make sense of the information. 

This new report calls for more investment in skilled analysts and action from national leaders to develop the analytical workforce, so that the NHS can unlock the full potential of its data and make faster progress on improving patient outcomes.
