Atlases and Directories of Care

Atlases and Directories of Care are structured, service assessment and decision support tools that provide standardised information about health and social services in a particular geographical area. Whilst directories list service information, atlases present the information visually using Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Atlases can highlight variations and gaps in care provision,  disparities in access, and enable comparisons between different geographical areas. They provide insight for policymakers and service providers to improve services and implement new models of care.
