Why we formed

AphA was formed in 2012 to address the lack of professionalism in health analytics and to provide a focus for the development of professional registration, and a platform for analysts to network, share knowledge and good practice.

We’ve created a growing UK community through sharing of experience and knowledge to promote the highest standards in healthcare analysis. We have members across the United Kingdom, in Health and Social Care organisations, we continue to bring together Analysts from England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

We provide support, networking opportunities and everyday practical resources.

Our aim is to raise the profile of healthcare analysts and provide a professional support network, ultimately giving members opportunity to apply for professional registration status.

We’re supporting our members to drive up the quality and applicability of robust analytics as an aid to evidence based decision making in a modern health and care system.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the importance of robust analytics and modelling supporting organisations to plan and make effective decisions, AphA will continue to champion the improvement of analytical capabilities to enhance service improvement, patient care and experience, and by achieving better outcomes for the Health and Social care services.
