New partnership to drive population health management initiatives across five London boroughs
[London, UK] Cerner has announced that it will start working with North London Partners (NLP) in a collaboration that will see them connect information, share records and apply advanced intelligence to drive population health management initiatives for nearly 1.5 million citizens.
NLP, a collaborative of health and care organisations across five of the capital’s boroughs – Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington, will use Cerner’s HealtheIntent platform to provide a single longitudinal record for citizens, including data from all the health and care systems in the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP).
BJ-HC reported last month that Cerner planned to expand its Dublin R&D hub by creating 50 jobs to be part of its Intellectual Property development team, unveiling plans to create advanced predictive algorithms to run on the HealtheIntent platform.
The healthcare IT giant is also part of a consortium led by North East London Commissioning Suport Unit, including OptiMedis-COBIC UK and Imperial College Health Partners, that won a contract to provide a new national population health management dashboard for NHS England and Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) across the country, starting with four ICS sites.
Commenting on the NLP partnership, Geoff Segal, Cerner UK General Manager, said:
“Clinical decisions, underpinned by accessible, current information at the point of care, forms the basis of a safe patient journey. In addition, advanced data intelligence presents a huge opportunity to provide value-driven, integrated care.
“Our partnership supports these aims across the North London region and with a single source of truth, NLP will be able to identify at-risk patients, and make time appropriate interventions to ultimately improve the health outcomes and wellbeing of their communities.”
