Following on from two hugely successful rounds of the Health Service Modelling Associate Programme (HSMA), HSMA 3 launched in October 2020, this time with an extended level of one-to-one support as the programme moves online.
The HSMA Programme, run by PenCHORD, PenARC's operational research team, is a scheme in which NHS staff are released one day a week for a year to undertake a computer modelling, simulation or data science project that addresses issues of importance for their organisation.
Since its inception in 2016, HSMA projects have led to multi-million pound investments in new mental health facilities in Devon, support for business cases to increase stroke bed capacity in Cornwall and brand new emergency department resources across the region.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the implications for those working in the health and social care sectors, HSMA 3 is being run as an entirely online course with a combination of live lectures, pre-recorded lectures on YouTube and online resources and Zoom-based group discussions.
