The NHS generates a huge amount of data which, if collated and analysed in the right way, can be used to drive improvements in care and how services are run. This can improve patient outcomes and experience as well as optimise the use of resources across an organisation, system or even nationally.

The pandemic highlighted the need for consistent national data reporting and analysis, and with a new national ‘Data saves lives’ strategy to deliver, teams across the country are looking to make better use of their data assets drive insight and positive change.

This award will celebrate those looking to harness the power of the data they hold to bring about positive change in the delivery or planning of care, or a substantial improvement in patient outcomes. Winners will be projects sharing the successful implementation of new systems or processes driven by analysis and insight.
