Adopting a population health approach provides an opportunity to improve the health and wellbeing of an entire population through better planning and delivery of proactive care.
As Population Health Management (PHM) models continue to evolve and mature throughout the world, Arden & GEM is taking the emerging best practice and collaborating with health economies to help them develop a unique PHM solution that reflects their local circumstances and challenges.
Our solutions will support you to realise the aims of PHM for your health system and population:
We can work strategically with you to deliver an end-to-end PHM solution or on a modular basis to meet a specific need or challenge. Our service spans the four key enablers of effective PHM:
Data capture and data linkage
We can help you to capture or locate the sources of data required for your PHM needs and bring it together into one place using sophisticated online portals and cloud based technology. By capturing primary care data we make this about the whole population, not just those who use more complex services like hospitals. Our information governance approach allows us to build data around the patient and enables the development of solutions that can provide insight directly to clinicians delivering their healthcare.
Turning data into intelligence
We are passionate about turning data into intelligence and provide the bespoke tools, dashboards and alerts required to make PHM an invaluable source of information for delivery of your vision. Our unique GEMIMA BI tool empowers clinicians and commissioners by providing tailored views that deliver the local intelligence required to perform their roles effectively. In addition, the National Commissioning Data Repository (NCDR) portal provides specialised services data to deliver a comprehensive view of population needs. We have developed standardised analytic and reporting solutions across a wide customer base, but as every area is unique, it is our highly skilled analysts that maximise the value of your data. By working alongside your system leaders we tailor the solution to your pathways, challenges and vision.
Population segmentation and predictive modelling
We can also deliver the segmentation and modelling required to define population cohorts and understand the potential outcomes of change. Our risk stratification tools use a range of advanced algorithms to predict who is likely to need care, and for what. While our advanced segmentation approach can help you to break your population down into different groups, with different behaviours and needs. Used alongside modelling approaches, this intelligence allows interventions to be targeted and their potential impact assessed by our rigorous health economists.
Designing and targeting interventions
We can help you to implement effective interventions to target your priority patient groups, at all levels, whether that’s designing a new model of care or identifying and tweaking an existing evidence-based intervention. With expertise in behaviour change, digital tools and workforce planning, we can support you to empower both staff and patients in delivering personalised care approaches that improve outcomes and experience.
Our services can be quickly initiated to start, or enhance, your journey towards delivering effective PHM for your health and care system.
As PHM models continue to evolve and mature throughout the world, Arden & GEM is taking the emerging best practice and collaborating with health economies to help them develop a unique PHM solution that reflects their local circumstances and challenges.
We would love the opportunity to talk with you about working collaboratively to develop your PHM solution.

A new national programme has been launched to work closely with a series of pilot sites, using population health approaches and multidisciplinary partnerships, to identify and tackle local health inequality challenges.
Arden & GEM’s Data and Systems team has rapidly developed a national system to capture data on administered vaccinations to inform management of the 2020/21 flu immunisation programme and underpin a future COVID vaccination programme.
Our Associate Director of Advanced Analytics - Jess Hicks, has been invited to speak at the NHS Data and Information Virtual Congress on Tuesday 1 September.
With a successful track record of building, deploying and hosting bespoke applications, Arden & GEM worked closely with key stakeholders to develop a central system to record COVID-19 patient notifications (the CPNS) in just five days.
As the health and care system continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, a constant flow of information and analysis, to inform policy development and decision-making, is required. Arden & GEM has the unique ability to quickly generate bespoke datasets at a population level.
Using patient data to understand and model potential health outcomes has never been more important than it is now, says Jessica Hicks, Principal Analytics Consultant at NHS Arden & GEM CSU, in this latest blog for NHS Voices.
Even without the pressure of a pandemic, the NHS is used to having to maximise its resources, which is why a better understanding of our patients’ needs is so important. In our latest blog, Associate Director of Applied Analytics, Paul Birch looks at how to make greater use of PHM approaches.
Patient data is one of the most valuable and protected assets we have. In this blog, our Head of Data and Systems, David O’Callaghan looks at the four key elements that will enable PCNs and the wider health system to make better use of patient data to prevent and manage health problems.
Arden & GEM CSU’s Data and Systems team has built a bespoke COVID-19 Patient Notification System (CPNS) to help providers accurately record patient deaths from coronavirus.
