SHAPE links national data sets clinical analysis, public health, primary care and demographic data with information on healthcare estates performance and facilities location. The application also includes a fully integrated Geographical Information System mapping tool and supports travel time analysis.
The primary aim of the application is to facilitate scenario planning and option appraisal in support of STPs. Specifically, the SHAPE Place Atlas helps organisations consider the following:
- evaluation of the impact of service configuration on populations
- assess the optimum location of services
- an accessible online tool for STP stakeholders
- key indicators and data about the STP with a focus on health inequalities and equity of service.
- flexible geographies including STP, CCG, LA, ward and LSOA
- a comprehensive overview of the STP’s NHS estate
- functionality to enable users to flexibly evaluate and test the impact of plans
- support for GP Primary Care Networks
