Demographic analysis and mapping solutions - Health Industry

Public and private healthcare providers use geodemographics for health planning and analysis

Efficient analysis for healthcare providers

Healthcare providers have to understand the needs of their patients so they can offer improved services. Mapping and geodemographics analysis help recognise local populations and patient behaviours leading to improved planning.

Reporting and special analysis tools assist in tasks such as planning social marketing campaigns and managing sales territories.

Understand resident populations

Clinical Commissioning Groups (formerly Primary Care Trusts) and health research bodies need to visualise patient flows, referral patterns and areas with high disease incidences.

Prospex, our mapping software is ideally suited to integrating data from disparate sources and formats. Use Prospex to layer your data, monitor trends and plan services with a greater understanding of the characteristics and needs of the local population.

CCG boundaries

The NHS underwent a major change in 2013 with responsibility for primary care in England moving from Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). We have boundaries for CCGs, updated as mergers take place, as well as the PCTs these replaced.

These can be supplied on their own or with other administrative boundary data. You can use this to understand the relationship between health and social care and drill down to see detailed patterns of need and the structure of communities. Look at the ward and lower super output areas (LSOAs) on the AdminView page.

Assess health needs

Health authorities identify and map the prevalence of health conditions and healthcare inequalities in their areas using a geographic information system such as Prospex and the P² People & Places people classification. Using this information they assess the variation in healthcare needs and tailor their service provision across the local population.

Healthcare and social marketing

Public health authorities need to engage the public with health messages.

The P² people classification is designed to make social marketing campaigns more effective, giving maximum engagement with the target group.

Used with mapping software, P² helps plan the provision of healthcare information to GP waiting rooms and pharmacies.
