Welcome to the academy

The Midlands Population Health Management Academy was part of a programme of support, commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement (Midlands) working in partnership with the Local Government Association and Public Health England.

The Programme ran from March 2019 to March 2020. It was designed to help Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships and Integrated Care Systems embed population health management (PHM) practices.

The programme was provided by a multi-disciplinary partnership led by the Strategy Unit (NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit), including the Oxford Centre for Triple Value HealthcareDartmouth Institute,  The Centre for Health and Social Care Leadership (University of Birmingham), Milliman and others.

A 30 minute webinar sharing reflections and lessons learned from the programme team can be viewed here.

This site was designed to share information and resources used during the programme. It is no longer being updated but will remain intact as part of the programme legacy. Please take a look around. 




Core teams

PHM needs a cross sector approach. During the programme we supported multidisciplinary teams to ‘learn by doing’. Each undertook a PHM project to demonstrate the practical benefits of PHM. Find resources from the Core Team programme here.


Analysts are essential to PHM. The Analyst programme covered some of the technical skills required to enable PHM and also sought to network Analysts across the region.


Throughout the programme we also ran a series of webinars including: Perspectives on PHM, Core Skills for PHM and Lessons Learned from the programme. All of these have been recorded and can be found here.
