Government Outcomes (GO) Lab: Better Commissioning for Healthier Lives

Senior outcomes analyst Ellie spoke at a symposium at the Government Outcomes (GO) Lab, part of the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford. The theme was ‘Better Commissioning for Healthier Lives’, and Ellie spoke and led workshops on how to develop an outcomes framework in healthcare. The attendees included an enthusiastic mix from council leaders, commissioners and academics.

We’re excited about hearing more from the GO Lab in the future – a new programme, jointly funded by HM Government, researching innovative public sector commissioning to achieve better social outcomes.

More information on the symposium can be found here.

NHS Digital trade mission to Brazil and Hospitalar Conference

OBH’s COO – Juliana, visited Brazil on a trade mission with NHS Digital to help promote Britain’s expertise in health tech in South America. She spoke at Hospitalar – the largest healthcare trade show in South America – about building outcomes frameworks and collecting outcomes data using smartphones, all in Portuguese! The 2017 event, where the theme was Digital Health, attracted over 90,000 attendees.

At OBH we’re interested in Brazil for a few reasons. Firstly, the Brazilian healthcare system is similar in structure to the NHS – the public system provides universal coverage that is free at the point of use. Secondly, with a total spend of almost $200 billion and a population of over 200 million – the opportunity to improve health outcomes is massive. Thirdly, (and perhaps most importantly) – two members of #teamOBH (Ju and Lu) are Brazilian!
