Planning4care strategic needs assessment for social care and health

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. Planning4care is led by OCSI, who have joined-up with longstanding collaborators Care Equation for the project.

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. 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
