In a unique partnership with Ordnance Survey, we provide Geographic Intelligence and Mapping services to Clinical Commissioning Groups, STPs, Integrated Care Systems, NHS England, GP Practices, Public Health, Community Health and Acute Hospital Trusts. The HealthGIS team specialise in the development of interactive maps and dashboards that illustrate local and strategic healthcare data with instant results.

From GP surgery and other care provider locations, to a practice area, or for identifying a spread of registered patients or particular population demographics, HealthGIS is an invaluable tool for supporting GP practices and STPs alike to make decisions that lead to greater service efficiency, management and improved communications. Other healthcare information which is analysed and visualised on maps are; patient flows to hospital (A&E, Inpatients, Outpatients, Urgent Care), travel accessibility to services (driving, walking, public transport). We help with the following: 

Service provider sites

  • Primary care (GPs, Pharmacies, Dentists, Opticians)
  • Hospitals (Acute, community, specialist)
  • Care Homes

Population demographics/statistics

  • Supporting population health management, public health and prevention
  • Deprivation indicators
  • Ethnicity
  • Population ages
  • Population classification systems, e.g. ONS Output Area Classification (OAC)

Primary Care

  • GP practice boundaries
  • Registered patient spreads
  • Workforce analysis and reporting

Hospital activity analysis and patient flows
