ASTHOConnects: Innovative Applications of GIS for Population Health

July 19, 2019
2 p.m. EDT

This page refers to an event that occurred in the past.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are used to integrate, manage, analyze, and display geographical information from large datasets. In public health and healthcare, GIS are being linked to electronic health records (EHRs) to study the correlation between health and geographical areas. The emerging use of this technology is a promising tool with broad applications in disease surveillance and mapping.

Join ASTHO for a live, virtual event with GIS and disease mapping experts. Speakers from Esri and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services will discuss current population health applications that link or integrate GIS with electronic health information. Panelists will present on their organization’s work and answer questions about lessons learned, promising practices, and how to align GIS innovation efforts across stakeholders in the future.
