THE CHALLENGE

 

In collaboration with the prominent Public Health team at North Northamptonshire Council, our mission was to harness data across various themes to generate meaningful insights. The goal was to contribute to evidence-based decision-making and optimise public health strategies for the benefit of the community.

Our primary objective was to leverage diverse data sets within the Public Health domain; by adopting a comprehensive approach, we could extract actionable insights that could inform strategic planning, resource allocation, and the implementation of targeted interventions.

 

THE SOLUTION

 

Our engagement with the Public Health team involved the creation of a suite of topic-based reports and dashboard tools aimed at providing valuable insights to service leads and commissioners. Two specific areas, Weight Management, and Substance Misuse, witnessed the transformative impact of these tools, leading to informed decision-making and influencing the re-commissioning of future services.

In the sector of Weight Management, our reports and dashboards delved deep into the data, trends, patterns, and the effectiveness of existing programs. The insights gleaned played a pivotal role in shaping the re-commissioning strategy for weight management services. By identifying areas of success and opportunities for improvement, service leads and commissioners were empowered to make data-driven decisions that aligned with the evolving needs of the community.

Similarly, in the domain of Substance Misuse, our tailored reports and dashboard tools facilitated a comprehensive analysis of relevant data, providing a different understanding of the landscape. This informed approach allowed service leads and commissioners to strategise the re-commissioning of services, ensuring that resources were directed toward evidence-based interventions and programs that had the most significant impact on mitigating substance misuse issues in the community.

Beyond these specific areas, our collaboration extended to bespoke work on Asthma admissions in children and self-harm episodes. The outcome of this specialised focus was the development of a Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) based dashboard. This dashboard, initially designed to address Asthma admissions and self-harm episodes, proved to be highly adaptable. It became a versatile tool capable of accommodating data related to any type of diagnosis. The success of this product was such that it found widespread adoption within the Public Health team, serving as a dynamic and customizable resource for monitoring and analysing various health indicators.

 

THE RESULTS

 

Our commitment was to extract insights and provide detailed reports across various Public Health themes. We succeeded in delivering timely insights and comprehensive reports, empowering the Public Health team with critical, up-to-date information for effective interventions.

We utilised diverse data sources for robust analyses. Integrating live data where possible enabled real-time insights and automated reporting, keeping the Public Health team updated on trends for swift responses. Tailored solutions included bespoke reports, dashboards, and mapping tools covering essential themes like Smoking, Weight Management, Substance Misuse, and Self-Harm, providing visual representations for deeper understanding.
