As far back as the 1840s, clinicians have been using maps to inform them about population health trends. Today, the geo-analytics industry is well-developed in almost every application, with the exception of healthcare and medicine. There is potential to use mapping technologies to show patient disease burden in geographic form, map locations of health care facilities, and a plethora of accountable care population health initiatives would benefit from geo-analysis. Health Catalyst is working to integrate inputs into analysis like maps that can show geographic care boundaries, population health demographics, and more.

The Power of Geo-Analytics If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a good map is worth at least twice that There is much potential for using maps and geo-analytics as a tool for healthcare predictive analytics. Geography and spatial relationship is a significant tool in terms of outcomes research, comparative clinical effectiveness, and evidence-based medicine. As early as the 1840s, Dr. John Snow used a map to track cholera deaths in the Soho district of London from a contam- inated water source the now infamous Broad Street pump (see image below). Dr. Snow is widely considered to be the father of modern epidemiology.

The Power of Geo-Analytics Geo-Analytics: Ready for Primetime in Healthcare Geographic information systems (GIS) and geo-spatial analysis is a well-developed industry passing its 50th anniversary in Fall 2012; yet, with the possible exception of epidemiology, much of healthcare has not fully leveraged this powerful analytics technology. Various national and local data sources are captured as map layers and used with geo-analytics to routinely optimize a wide-range of operations and processes.

The Power of Geo-Analytics Geo-Analytics: Ready for Primetime in Healthcare A natural extension of these established approaches is to leverage GIS mapping of health care facilities, patient disease burden, and accountable care population health. This robust technology is an indispensable part of many industries. Now is the time for healthcare to fully leverage this same power of geo-analytics.

The Power of Geo-Analytics Geo Data and Medical Informatics This new type of medical informatics leverages national geo data infrastructure to improve personal health and quality of care. Here are examples of how this look: (including the next slide) Tracking water quality in major metropolitan areas (University of Cincinnati). Exploring your personal medical Place History and exposure to reported chemicals (ESRI).

The Power of Geo-Analytics Geo Data and Medical Informatics Geographic variation in medicine (or geo-medicine) is championed by well-known thought leaders such as Jack Wennberg and Jim Weinstein (Dartmouth), Bill Davenhall (ESRI, Ted Talk), and Jack Lord (University of Miami). Stemming from early work in the 1970s, these studies were first called small area variation analyses by Wennberg and Gittelsohn. No doctor can I remember ever asking me, Where have you lived? They havent asked me [about] the quality of the drinking water that I put in my mouth or the food that I ingest into my stomach. Bill Davenhall

Real World Geo-Spatial Analytics in Healthcare So that brings us to the real question at hand how healthy is your healthcare system? Health Catalyst is developing the methodology to integrate multiple inputs into a visually appealing analysis (think, maps) of geographic care boundaries, population health demographics, and provider locations. Potential map layer inputs can include sources such as Hospital Service Areas and Healthcare Referral Regions (Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care), CMS service area definition (Hospital Compare), data from the U.S. Census Bureau and Health Benefit Program filings with state health insurance departments, among others

Real World Geo-Spatial Analytics in Healthcare The goal of all these analyses is to measure and improve referral tracking and management, patient leakage to outside networks, and objective decision making for population health managers. We join with other geo- medicine leaders offering to you that indeed geography is the destiny of medicine.
