Canada, like most countries, faces many challenges in providing the best quality of care in a scalable and sustainable manner. Health care professionals need to organize vast amounts of complex data into understandable visuals so that information insights can be coupled with clinical collaboration to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of care.

Now is the time to invest in GIS, a sophisticated mapping technology that has helped many organizations to collaborate and communicate, make the most of limited budgets, track and mitigate the spread of infectious disease, sustainably deliver quality care and build healthier communities. It leverages all of the geographically-referenced data that exists in your corporate systems -- such as demographics, patient records, data pertaining to health related incidents including weather, large scale emergencies or disease outbreak-- to uncover what might not otherwise be visible or understood in a multipage report or complex spreadsheet.

ArcGIS is a robust platform that allows you to manage, analyze and display your data so that you can make the best, most informed decisions.  It gives everyone in your organization the ability to discover, use, make and share information and maps from any device, anywhere, anytime.

We’re able to share data easily, and understand patterns and relationships that are difficult to detect in charts and spreadsheets. Maps make it possible to communicate simple or complex concepts based on a common operating
view.

Areas of Focus

Epidemiology
Our solutions provide a powerful analysis tool for disease occurrence and trend information. Individual occurrences can be presented spatially on a map and used to conduct predictive modeling.

Geomedicine
GIS provides a platform to intersect personal health with geography. This creates insights that medical professionals can use to improve the quality of care they deliver.

Patient Care
In a hospital, GIS helps streamline service delivery and aids strategic planning. A mapped facility can be spatially analyzed for improved efficiency.

Research
From biomedical research to clinical information management, the use of GIS enables new perspectives on the analysis, visualization and interpretation of intersecting information.

Community Health Assessments & Access
Our solutions can associate people with the nearest hospital or health facility, locate underserved areas and measure access to care.
