For the fourth round of the Advancing Applied Analytics programme, we are looking to support teams who are working on local innovative and ambitious projects that can demonstrate how they will improve analytical capability in support of health and care services and provide lessons for the wider care system.
We have £750,000 of funding to support up to 12 good quality projects that:
- improve analytical capability and can show how this will support better care in the future
- are led by a local/regional NHS or social care provider or commissioning organisation including local authorities, though partnerships with other groups and sectors are welcome
- could benefit from funding of up to a maximum of £75,000 per project
- start no later than October 2020 for a maximum duration of 15 months.
For the first time, this fourth round of the programme will be supported by NHSX. NHSX is leading the largest digital health and social care transformation programme in the world and aims to drive digital, analytical and tech maturity in local NHS organisations in order to improve care.
By supporting the Advancing Applied Analytics programme NHSX is focussing on these aims and on innovation in the NHS. NHSX will contribute to the selection process by nominating assessors to take part, alongside many other external stakeholders from across the UK and colleagues that act as peer reviewers. NHSX will also provide support to successful projects to facilitate sustained improvement and spread of innovation across health and social care.
The Health Foundation will continue to lead and manage each project with the same approach as all previous rounds and will be responsible for final selection of successful projects from across the UK.
Further information can be found on the NHSX website.
The Advancing Applied Analytics programme is open to applicants across the UK.
The deadline for applications is noon, Monday 13 January 2020.
