Course summary

Health data analytics involves extracting insights from health data, either to shape national policy, manage local organisations or inform the care of an individual. As more and more data becomes available electronically, the demand for skilled and trained individuals to take advantage of it becomes increasingly urgent. As a student on the MSc Health Data Analytics, you will learn about mathematical and statistical approaches to understanding health data, including operational research, machine learning and health economics. You will also learn the fundamentals of how health data is collected, represented, stored and processed, as well as how to analyse it effectively and how best to present analyses to have an impact on decisions.

Careers

Health data analysts are employed by NHS England in a variety of roles, notably within NHS Improvement, assessing policy proposals and evaluating the economic or financial suitability of initatives. They are employed in acute trusts and in public health, mental health and other community-focused organisations to assist in the planning of services and the assessment of demand and to identify improvements in the organisation and management of services. Consultancy organisations providing services to the health sector also employ analysts, as do data and IT organisations. There are also roles in pharmaceutical companies.

Employability

On graduation, you will be skilled in the use of mathematical and statistical techniques for the manipulation and analysis of data. You will be familiar with state-of-the-art statistical packages, but also have detailed practical experience of working with health data and the specific challenges and responsibilities that it entails. You will understand the processes by which data is collected and have insights into how that impacts its significance. These experiences will equip you to work in the NHS and also in a range of commercial and other organisations dealing with healthcare data.

Optional qualifications

This degree is also available as a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate with fees set accordingly.
