Strategic Health Asset Planning and Evaluation
SHAPE is a web-enabled, evidence-based application which informs and supports the strategic planning of services and physical assets across a whole health economy.
The Strategic Health Asset Planning and Evaluation application:
- Links national datasets for clinical analysis, public health, primary care and demographic data with estates performance and facilities location;
- Enables interactive investigations by Local Area Teams, Providing Trusts, CCGs, GP practices and Local Authorities;
- Supports key policy initiatives such as QIPP, JSNA, Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment and Transforming Community Services;
- Provides you with a range of flexible capabilities; you drive it in the direction you want it to go.
