GIS for Health Services
When it comes to health services, location is inherent in all data: people have residences, assets have proximities, employees have worksites and parcels have both origins and destinations. Over 80% of all data contains a location component. By visualising and exploring the relationships within this data; and using the resulting discoveries to guide decision-making – you are effectively leveraging ‘location intelligence
Location intelligence is easily attained through utilising a Geographic Information System (GIS)
. The technology literally maps the geographic elements contained within an organisation’s data to expose patterns and relationships that may otherwise be hidden in a maze of numeric tables.
Through GIS, data is translated into a universal language, providing an analytical vantage point that no other tool can.
From service provision, geomedicine
and asset management, to epidemiology, policy making and research, Esri Australia provides health services organisations with the software
and GIS technical ingenuity
to get more out of their data using the common factor of location.

Building better communities for remote Indigenous Australians
Thousands of economically and socially vulnerable Indigenous Australians living in remote communities in South Australia rely on the Department of Community and Social Inclusion's (DCSI) Aboriginal and Remote Housing (ARH) unit for safe, quality housing.
The history of where you have lived and worked is as vital in healthcare diagnoses as your genetics and lifestyle.
GIS for health enables health care agencies to protect the populations they serve, understand the impacts of the environment on human health, and improve environmental health services delivery.
