NHS England invites you to register to take part in the forthcoming ACS & STP Development Partner Framework to give commissioners and providers access to Population Health Management support.
To fully achieve the transformation identified in the Five Year Forward View, Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) and Accountable Care Systems (ACSs) will need to supplement their core capabilities with more advanced innovations and solutions.
This includes tools to identify patients who are at high risk of an adverse event and are likely to be amendable to a particular intervention (i.e. ‘impactable’ patients); electronic patient records that give clinicians across all care settings a full picture of their patient’s health and well-being; support to monitor wider system programmes; and enhanced tools to integrate clinical workflow with patient activation data to ensure patients are being treated in the right place at the right time.
Most of all, it will require a fundamental cultural shift in how clinicians, managers and patients use (and are supported to embed) these new digital technologies, data tools and innovations to deliver meaningful change on the ground for patients.
The ACS and STP Development Partner Framework will provide an easy and supported route to accessing these capabilities from expert and experienced suppliers. It will be structured around three areas (though this is subject to ongoing consultation):
- Infrastructure: encompassing EPR and place-based digitalisation; Local Integrated Care Records and Health Information Exchange; primary care IT support and transformation; and data management and information governance;
- Insight: population health analytics and digital tools for system modelling, planning, risk stratification and impactability, care coordination and care management.
- Impact and Intervention: transformation and change; primary care transformation; self-care, patient empowerment and activation; and system optimisation.

The framework is planned for launch on 15 December 2017 to allow suppliers to apply for accreditation and will be open for use by ACSs and STPs from early next financial year 2018/19.
