Case study: Pioneering in Population Health Management and Outcome Measurement

This case study provides an opportunity to evaluate and reflect on the progress of ATBs ‘outcomes’ programme, and to share
Sunderland’s Population Health Management journey to date.

When established in 2019, Population Health
Management was not a well recognised term.
ATB knew that historically Sunderland had
potentially overweighted improving ‘performance’,
and wanted to refocus to get a balanced view with
improving outcomes as well. So, it was agreed to
adopt an ‘outcomes based approach’ to measure
success as a whole system, rather than just
restricted to individual providers. Outcomes were
defined as the ‘things that really matter to people’,
the end result of all care interventions
and experiences in combination
