Compendium of Clinical & Health Indicators (Interactive Atlases)

The National Centre for Health Outcomes Development (NCHOD) is a unique national resource in the UK concerned with all aspects of health outcomes assessment.

Funded by the Information Centre for health and social care, NCHOD produces the online Clinical and Health Outcomes Knowledge Base, including the Compendium of Clinical and Health Indicators. This is an extensive resource used predominantly by local authorities and Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) to help them direct public health resources effectively in their regions, to save lives.

Director of NCHOD, Dr Azim Lakhani is in no doubt that the Compendium combined with InstantAtlas makes a difference to UK health and to saving lives. He said: "Aided by InstantAtlas, what we are now able to do on a much wider scale and much more clearly, is show people where there might be a problem. This allows them to target resources effectively.”
