OBH are delighted to have contributed to the APPG ‘The Health of the Nation’ national strategy for #HealthierLongerLives, launched in February 2020!

OBH’s objective HEALTHSPAN® and HEALTHY LIFESPAN® Index measures use routinely collected, population-level, linked longitudinal health & care data across multiple care settings. These accurately measure the proportion of people’s lives which are spent in good health – either at national, regional or local level. By applying such metrics at a population level, we are able to gain a comprehensive and objective understanding of the health of the nation. This includes the health and care expenditure associated with improvements or deteriorations in HEALTHSPAN.

We look forward to continuing to support this fantastic work to meet the government’s mission of five extra healthy years by 2035, ensuring a renewed focus on the prevention of ill-health, while narrowing the gap between richest and poorest.
