Session Overview

Access to public health services and care can be affected by social, racial, economic, and physical barriers. Integrating these impediments into public health programs and interventions can improve the strategies linked to appropriate and targeted health services with specific community needs. Location intelligence offers a lens to better understand gaps in accessibility and shows where opportunities to intervene exist. 

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how GIS can help close gaps in public health services and healthcare coverage, especially in rural and remote communities. We will also present live demos to showcase GIS functionality that combines demographics and location intelligence to better understand what the community needs and where those needs are best met. We will conclude by presenting geolocation and navigation inside buildings, a new concept that will enhance patient experience.

Key Points

  • Identify how GIS can combine data on social, racial, economic and physical barriers to develop location intelligence on public health access with a goal of improved public health research, interventions and evaluation 
  • Understand how ArcGIS functionality will allow you to develop the location intelligence that your organization can replicate and adopt as part of its framework for public health access 
  • Visualize how digital mapping inside public health buildings can be used to enhance patient experience 

Intended Audience

This webinar is designed for public health professionals who are interested in location intelligence.
