Gaps or Overlaps? Applying Location Intelligence for Better Decisions

Geography is the science that connects people, places and their interactions. Geographic information system (GIS) technology can help health organizations make sense of those complex interactions. The resulting location intelligence offers tremendous value in promoting health and well-being on a personal and a population level by understanding where to apply resources to fill gaps or even to avoid extraneous resource allocation/saturation (overlaps). This presentation will explore how geography intersects and informs health and creates insights for better decisions. Modern day challenges, such as combatting the opioid epidemic, addressing homelessness and preparing for disasters will be cited as examples. Technology and policy considerations around navigating HIPAA in a geospatial world will also be discussed.
