UPRN in Health Steering Group Workshop
Wednesday, 29 March 2017 from 10:30 to 15:00 (BST)
The Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) is the unique identifier for every spatial address in Great Britain. The UPRN is part of the AddressBase family of products which are free at the point of use to the public sector. UPRNs are used widely by central and local government to reference and share data relating to properties. It was recently made available on terms equivalent to open data to enable greater reuse.
Ordnance Survey is a government-owned organisation. Its data, including UPRN, is used by emergency services, for example, to navigate to an incident quickly and help save lives – whether it’s fighting crime, preventing fire or carrying out a missing persons search. It’s also used at major events to help organisers plan and ease traffic – such as at The Olympics and The Commonwealth Games.
The workshop will provide an overview of UPRN existing uses and its progress towards being adopted in health and wider public sector.
What's on the agenda?
Working in collaboration with Ordnance Survey, iNetwork would like to offer you an opportunity to join the discussion with the UPRN in Health Steering Group to consider the opportunities, benefits, and barriers to the adoption of this unique identifier into health data.
Tony Bracey - JIGSO Project in Wales
Steve Brandwood - Executive Director of Engagement GeoPlace – the importance of UPRNs to local government and gazetteer management.
Engage UPRN in Health Steering Group members to learn more about the approach from key NHS arms-length bodies, government departments, local authorities, and emergency services.
Explore potential use cases that could deliver business and clinical benefit across health, social care and public health.
Help develop insight, which will act as a roadmap to support the aims of the National Information Board (NIB).
Who Should Attend?
The event is open to members of the UPRN in Health Steering Group and any public-sector organisation or charity that would benefit from the adoption of UPRN in health data or have an interest in promoting the use of geographic analysis across health & Social Care.
