Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust

In a pioneering NHS project, Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust has used Esri’s ArcGIS platform to help better understand demand for its services amongst the local population. The insight gained will help it to adapt resources to meet anticipated needs, as well as conduct health education campaigns targeted to the areas that need them most.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • ArcGIS, in conjunction with actuarial analysis, gives Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust faster time to insight about the needs of the population in its catchment areas.
  • The Trust can use this insight to focus its resources on the departments and times when they will be needed most, reducing wastage.
  • Hot spot maps show where key health issues are most prevalent, so the Trust can target health awareness campaigns in these specific localities.


"[This project] has given us a whole new platform for discussion and changed the conversation at board level to focus on moving to a more sophisticated way of visualising and reporting data. The IHT board has even requested that geographic information and location is included within its business intelligence strategy"

Paul Scott, Director of Finance and Performance at the Ipswich Hospital Trust
