Adam Steventon

Director of Data Analytics at The Health Foundation

Adam Steventon has established an innovative team at the Health Foundation, where he has worked since 2014, that uses data to tackle pressing problems affecting the health of the UK. Together they produce open-source tools and approaches that can be used by others, and champion better analytics across the health and social care system. They also design and deliver large-scale initiatives that use data to improve health, such as the Networked Data Lab and Improvement Analytics Unit. Their research and analysis regularly informs national policy, and they share what they know about how to maximise the benefit of health data and data-driven technologies. 

Before joining the Health Foundation, Adam was a senior analyst at the Nuffield Trust where he led some of the first projects that brought together health and social care data in the UK. He was a Harkness Fellow in Health Care Policy and Practice at Yale University in 2013, where he examined the use of technology to improve care for people with heart failure. Between 2004 and 2008, the economic modelling Adam produced at the Pensions Policy Institute informed the development of the pensions legislation. Adam studied mathematics at Cambridge University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has a PhD in health services research from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
