Following the success of our 2023 conference in Birmingham, we are delighted to announce that this year's HACA conference will be held on 23rd-24th July 2024 at Telford International Centre, with the opportunity to also attend virtually.

The HACA conference is a celebration of the great work of health and care analysts bringing together analysts and leaders and decision makers to showcase how analysts can help leaders make high quality decisions.

The conference is brought to you by the four NHS Commissioning Support Units, designed and lead by The Strategy Unit with support from partnership organisations.

By Analysts, For Analysts and with Leaders

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘By analysts, for analysts and with leaders’ exploring the ‘What, How and Why of analytics!’

• What health and care problems can analytics help address?
• How can these problems be addressed through analytical methods?
• Why is high quality analysis needed to make impactful decisions?
