The new Scotpho Online Profiles Tool (OPT) is designed to replace the previous reports and excel based outputs, the online profile tool (OPT) allows users to view the various different profiles produced by the ScotPHO collaboration. The profiles highlight the considerable variation in health between areas and help identify priorities for health improvement. They are designed to give a snapshot overview of health for each area using spine charts (which show how the area compares to another area (the default is the Scottish average)), and allow further understanding of the results via rank charts and trend charts. There are profiles for alcohol, diabetes, drugs, health and wellbeing and tobacco control. Geographical area can be selected by health board.
