Public Health Intelligence

Public Health Intelligence

This page is for our colleagues and partner organisations across Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset who require public health intelligence to support their decision-making. We can assist you by:

  1. Developing ‘shared understanding’ of key public health issues facing our health and care system
  2. Building and maintaining a system-wide public health evidence-base, to underpin interventions
  3. Crafting more compelling public health narratives that foster engagement and action
  4. Intelligence capability development across our health and care system

What We Do

Prevention at Scale: The key element of our work programme is to support the evolving ‘prevention at scale’ paradigm of both system-working and locality-working, as we move towards the Dorset Accountable Care System.

GP locality working: We support the development of primary care community initiatives at ‘prevention at scale’.

Strategic commissioning: We provide business intelligence and health economics support to commissioners.

Mandated programmes: We support the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) and Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) undertaken three-yearly for the Dorset Health and Care System.

    Transformational Intelligence We’ve been calling it ‘transformational’ since we started changing what we do. Transformational: the most mis- and over-used term ever. Right? ‘Transformational’ should mean a move to a different way of working. It should not mean incrementally improve what we are doing —...

Outcomes

Population health and wellbeing ‘outcomes’ are described by many different indicators. We focus on those of most importance to our health and care system.

Risks

Indicators ‘population health risks’ attempt to capture the causes and protective factors that are thought to determine our population health outcomes.

Localities

Across Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole there are 13 localities with varied geographies, health needs and populations. The profiles explore key data and performance by area.
