Welcome to the future seminar Wednesday 3rd November Overcoming the challenges of health service provision through the use of mapping
Why Mapping? “A picture paints a thousand words…”
A world of facts and figures…
Painting the picture…
What goes in… Postcodes Boundary Data Relevant Patient Categories Demographic Data Third Party Information
Telling the story…
What does the story tell you? York is the busiest area Easingwold and Northallerton both have some overlapping coverage Scarborough is an area of possibly wasted resources Most areas are performing well The York area may be overworked Some outlying areas are outside of easy access and may suffer There is a large gap in the service cover south west of Richmond Lack of cover is causing a massive shortfall in treatments Would resources and effort be better applied elsewhere?
To summarise… Mapping can bring you instant understanding of your data Images can be used to pass on information quickly to others Projects can be more targeted from the start You can improve efficiency Wastage is minimised and therefore costs are reduced You can see where processes are working well More importantly you can see where processes are NOT working Plan for the future with credible reasoning
Sounds great but… General Concerns: My current mapping takes 3 months to turn around Software is expensive Mapping programmes are hard to use Beacon Dodsworth solutions: We can provide a system that enables you to create bespoke maps in minutes Our solutions are competitive, cost effective and flexible The tools we provide are designed to be used with any level of experience and include both onsite and external support
Case study… The Challenge: Be proactive in understanding the communities mental health needs, to provide more comprehensive resources for patients, carers and families The Beacon Dodsworth Solution: Plot Trust locations and analyse against patient data, referral location and mental illness Identify trends and hotspots in mental health issues Benefits: Improve targeting of resources and planning for future build locations, service provisions and resource allocation Make informed investment decisions whilst maintaining the standard and quality of mental health services
