MLCSU director named HSJ100 wildcard for 2022
Andi Orlowski, Director of the Health Economics Unit, part of NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU (MLCSU), has been named as one of the 20 “wildcards” for the 2022 HSJ100.
The HSJ100 is a list compiled by the Health Service Journal of the 100 most influential people in health. The HSJ100 wildcards are people and organisations with no formal power over the direction of national heath policy but who have ideas that could and should influence it.
The HSJ explains: “to select the final 20, we focused in on those who were well placed to make an impact on the particular challenges of the forthcoming 12 months.”
Andi has been named on the list alongside GPs, journalists and notable staff and directors from other NHS organisations, charities and the private sector.
The HSJ continues:
“Population health management may be a buzzword but it describes an important concept. Understanding the health needs of communities will be crucial for ICSs and will help recovery by ensuring the right services are provided to meet those needs. Mr Orlowski and his team provide the expertise and analytics to make this happen. He is also a strong and informed voice on how data can identify health inequalities and how such gaps can then be addressed.”
