Health and care intelligence specialist

Health and care intelligence specialist

Take data on individual or population health and use of services and other forms of evidence and turn it into health and care intelligence

Working for organisations that study the health of populations, plan, commission, manage, deliver, monitor and evaluate health and social care policies and services, you’ll take data and turn it into health and care intelligence that will have an impact on decision makers across the health and care system and inform and influence their decisions, leading ultimately to improved population health and better patient outcomes and experiences. In your daily work, you’ll interact with team members, organisational managers, internal and external stakeholders. Much of your output will take the form of reports for publication or pieces of analysis that you will present to senior managers and decision makers. You may also need to provide information to the government, other organisations or members of the public. You’ll be a great communicator, responsible for your research findings to both technical and non-technical audiences in either a written or verbal format.
