What better way to amplify everything that data teams across Essex are achieving than by bringing them together through the Be Part Of The Equation (BPOTE) network.
Our last event was held on 23 November 2021, with a focus on exploring health data and understanding our population through segmentation. We have some exciting plans for BPOTE in 2022, look out for an announcement in February.
Duncan Taylor, Capability Lead for ecda, hosted the final event for 2021, welcoming Keith Ellis, Head of Business Intelligence, North East Essex CCG, Stephen Simpkin, Data Science Fellow, ECC and Georgia Dyer, Population Health Management Analyst from Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership.
The truth is out there: Health Data
Keith Ellis, Head of Business Intelligence, NHS North East Essex CCG, demystified health data for us all! Keith took us through the complexity of health data, including which health organisations hold what data, and shared examples of data collaboration already happening within Essex and beyond.
The profile of segmentation as a technique is rising and many of us are being asked to complete segmentation analysis within our various organisations. Stephen Simpkin, Data Science Fellow, ECC, explored the principles of segmentation and which models might be appropriate for which tasks. Stephen was joined by Georgia Dyer, Population Health Management Analyst from Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership.
Understanding our population through the data around us
During breakout groups we built a profile of what data sets we own that could help us to understand the health of that person and the wider social determinants that affect their health.
