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.
