Commissioning health and care services which deliver the best possible health outcomes, in the most efficient way, for their local population is the constant challenge facing all healthcare leaders. In this video, Ana Ohde, Senior Health Economist at Arden & GEM shares how health economics can be applied practically to conduct population health analysis. From identifying unwarranted variation, to making the case for change, to measuring outcomes, health economics provides the rigour and independence to ensure that the problem is adequately defined and that the right solution is implemented.

With the NHS facing unprecedented demand for services, local health systems are under continual pressure to improve productivity and performance.
