Planning4care 2.0 – helping local partners understand the impact of preventative work, shifts in care patterns and changes to population health

We are really pleased to report that Planning4care 2.0 has now launched, providing a range of powerful future planning scenarios, the latest demographic projections and social care data from the National Adult Social Care Intelligence System (NASCIS), and a new easy-to-use web interface.

Planning4care provides the intelligence that social care and health commissioners and providers need in order to improve service planning and delivery. Information and analysis from Planning4care enables local commissioners and providers to understand likely future care needs and service requirements under a range of alternative future planning scenarios.

The major changes to the tool for version 2.0 include:

  • New futures scenarios including impact of successful local preventative initiatives, shift from residential to community care, increases in Healthy Life Expectancy, and varying future population projection scenarios
  • Improved visualisation for scenarios and comparator area data
  • Incorporating the new NASCIS annual return data on local provision and costs
  • Revised summary report including impact of the latest data, and analysis of the different scenarios for your area

All subscribed Planning4care users now have access to the new Planning4care version, with the revised summary reports following shortly.
