Description: GIS is a powerful tool that has been successfully implemented to help address a number of significant health issues ranging from disease management to improved services. GIS and related spatial analysis provide a set of tools for strategizing treatment and prevention of disease, keeping healthcare costs down, and delivering services to the communities most in need. The usefulness of GIS in healthcare is very broad. Public health departments, public health policy and research organizations, medical centers, hospitals and health insurance organizations utilize Geographic information systems to find innovative ways to address healthcare issues through location data.

Handouts: No handouts are currently available.


At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • improve services
  • identify infectious disease and prevention
  • understand how geographic elements such as distance and barriers between two points can cause fragmented care by looking at mile radii via drive time analysis

*'Taking Requests' means that the venue has not yet decided to either open or close for this program. Clicking on 'Request' sends an email to the specified venue to let them know you would like to attend the program at their facility. It also puts you on a list to be notified if the venue decides to 'Open' (or 'Close').

Note: Participants on the requestors list are not automatically registered when a venue changes to 'Open'. They still need to login to the SCHOOLS system and register.

Also, Participants can register for a program at one venue now and change to another later, as long as the venue is open and is not full.
