ViewItUK Ltd has grown out of a research and monitoring system (NDTMS) with key reporting technologies designed and built by NDEC for the drug and alcohol treatment sector and government departments.

NDTMS has been the national instrument for two decades and provides comprehensive epidemiological monitoring and management of performance indices. A second system (EuroURHIS 2) compares urban health indicators in cities Europe-wide for use by planners of healthcare and urban initiatives.

The success of these legacy systems has led to the formation of a start-up company from the University of Manchester, that provides a vehicle for marketing and further development of a portal for the analysis and visualisation of data online.
