Regional Intelligence Analysts Network

There is an important role for analysts across the South West to support health and care system change and transformation. The Regional Intelligence Analysts Network (RIAN) aims to provide learning, development, networking and collaboration opportunities for those analysts working in healthcare.

The RIAN was created by the South West Academic Health Science Network (SW AHSN) in collaboration with the Association of Professional Healthcare Analysts (AphA) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Peninsular Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (PenCLAHRC).

The network welcomes all professional analysts within public sector organisations across the South West including, public health, local authority social care, voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises, who:

  • Are responsible for data, information or performance analysis.
  • Want to help shape a health and care system which supports service transformation and improvement.

What is the aim of the RIAN? 

The RIAN will be committed to building skills and capacity within their workforce, to sharing ideas, expertise, techniques and tools to create a responsive workforce with the ability to identify insightful findings for service transformation and improvement.

Why should you join? 

Do you want to discover new tools, resources and contacts to provide timely information and insight, which can inform the decisions that are influencing and driving health and care transformation?

Join to share learning, showcase innovative ways of working, collaborate on projects and keep up to date with opportunities.
