Needs Profile V9

The Needs Profile is the tool that facilitates calculation of an estimated budget and other accompanying outputs via Imosphere’s Formulate solution. The questions in the tool are quantitive rather than qualitative, as the answers are designed to be used by an algorithm. The Needs Profile follows the same domain-by-domain approach as the SANA and has been designed to be proportionate, so that where a Care Act outcome area was not found to be eligible in the SANA, questions about this area do not need to be completed in the Needs Profile. Depending on the social care case management system used locally, the Needs Profile may either open up as an additional section at the end of the Strengths and Needs Assessment, or require opening as a new form following completion of the SANA – with the eligibility results from the SANA being pre-populated at the start of the form to ensure the Needs Profile questions are proportionate.
