Health Intelligence

We will assess, measure and describe health and wellbeing, as well as health risks, health needs and health outcomes for the population of the Isle of Man.

We do this by collecting, analysing and interpreting health-related data into meaningful information.

This is used to indicate areas of health and wellbeing where the Isle of Man could improve. Health Intelligence informs action and enables the monitoring and evaluation of outcomes.
