NHS-R Conference Workshop: PHM ExploreR – 24th November 2022

PHM ExploreR: An open source tool for Population Health Management

  • Thursday 24th November 2022,

About the course:

The workshop will introduce delegates to the PHM ExploreR: a versatile R Shiny tool created for exploring Population Health and facilitating Population Health Management (PHM) in healthcare systems.

PHM is of increasingly high interest within the NHS, but many Business Intelligence departments lack the appropriate tools to keep pace with this rapidly growing field.

For NHS analysts, the PHM ExploreR aims to reduce reliance on Excel solutions and management consultancies offering bespoke pieces of work, and enable users to independently and interactively explore the key areas of PHM, such as Population Segmentation and Risk Stratification.

The workshop will start by describing the data requirements of the tool, and introduce the synthetic linked dataset used for demonstration. This will also cover the data required for maximum effectiveness of the tool.

The workshop will then move on to cover the full functionality of the suite, including:

  • A number of summary graphs and statistics to provide a high level overview of the population.
  • A series of segmentation methods, including Bridges to Health and data-driven methods such as decision trees and clustering methods.
  • Patient-level ‘theoplots’, charting activity utilisation for individuals across multiple healthcare settings.
  • Regression-based risk stratification for analysing and predicting differences in patient activity utilisation and spend.
