The dementia profile developed by the Dementia Intelligence Network collects new and existing data on dementia at both Clinical Commissioning Group and local authority level.
The data covers six key domains across the entire dementia pathway:
- preventing well
- diagnosing well
- living well
- supporting well, and
- dying well.
The profile gives commissioners, local decision makers and health professionals access to local data and intelligence to enable local teams to compare themselves against other areas in England, or those with similar demographics. This will assist the local planning of services and support areas to make sustainable improvements from an easily accessible online platform.

In addition to the profile, the Dementia Intelligence Network has created the first dementia data catalogue to identify and categorise all dementia related data. The dementia data catalogue is the first step in ensuring all gaps in dementia data are filled, and aims to stimulate conversation across organisations and promote joint working to make more data available for potential inclusion within the dementia profile.
