The healthcare industry has always been at the forefront of innovation, with healthcare professionals leveraging the latest tools and technologies to provide better patient care. This year’s Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Global Conference is no different, with industry leaders and technology providers showcasing their latest solutions and approaches that are transforming the healthcare landscape.
Esri is once again participating in the HIMSS conference, highlighting its geospatial technology solutions that are helping healthcare organizations augment their evidence-based decision-making in ways that build stronger communities and provide better patient care. Since 1969, Esri has been in the business of mapping. As the global market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software and location intelligence, we have supported customers with geographic science and geospatial analytics – what we call The Science of Where. We take a geographic approach to problem-solving, brought to life by modern GIS technology (ArcGIS). We are committed to using science and technology to build a healthy and sustainable world.
If you’re attending the HIMSS 2023 Conference, be sure to visit Esri’s booth, located at 4353 in the Expo. Our team of experts will be available to answer your questions and show you how our geospatial technology solutions can advance your organization’s mission. Here’s a sampling of what geospatial technology can do:
- Manage your indoor spaces. Indoor GIS allows you to build a digital twin of your facilities, increasing patient satisfaction with better wayfinding, managing fixed and mobile assets, and building the connected hospital of the future.
- Make you more strategic. Developing and operationalizing your healthcare strategy requires data and analysis. Using a location-based perspective, results will facilitate a deeper understanding of your patients and their communities, help you outmaneuver your competition, and make better decision about growth and service mix.
- Move toward better access to care. Calculating highly accurate routes from patients to providers or creating relevant service areas requires a geographic approach. Combining travel time and travel distance parameters with other metrics that increase a patient’s travel burden can help a health system make moves that improve access to their services with equity in mind.
Join our session
One of the key highlights of Esri’s participation at the HIMSS 2023 Conference is our session, “How Well Do You Really Know the Communities You Serve?” being held on Thursday, April 20th at 11:30 AM in South Building, Level 4, S403. In this session, we’ll introduce the value of spatial thinking and share five new datasets that will offer a totally different way of understanding your community. In a facilitated discussion, the audience will help guide priorities in a growth scenario for a health system. This session may revolutionize the way you approach your data-informed decision-making.
To get a preview of successful GIS implementations be sure to check out the Healthcare IT Today GIS website. Here, you’ll find a wealth of resources, including case studies, best practices, and video interviews, describing how healthcare organizations are using geospatial technology to create better processes and better health.
