Redefining the role of citizens, employers and the state

A true population health model needs to move beyond risk stratification of the population based on their current health needs.  Truly insightful and predictive analytics that can be used to target primary prevention initiatives and keep people healthy are required.  Can the role of Citizens and employers be redesigned to support this?

Consumer activation, for example through apps that collect data on demographics and lifestyle at the same time as encouraging the right behaviours may be the quickest way to generate insights.  Employers could take greater responsibility to employee health, and this could be incentivised by local government, e.g. through business rates.
