Mapping healthier outcomes

From controlling the spread of Zika virus to identifying the ideal location for a new hospital – health agencies around the world are strengthening their service delivery with insights provided through location-based analytics technology.

By leveraging the element of location, decision-makers are able to map, visualise and explore health data, and uncover new trends and patterns that would otherwise remain hidden.

With location-based analytics technology – commonly known as Geographic Information System (GIS) technology – spending can be prioritised, vulnerable populations can be identified and stronger policy can be developed.
