Health care executives and managers will get a closer look at how to use geographic information systems (GIS) to improve patient care, better manage their facilities, and increase their market share with this book. GIS is already used to monitor the spread of disease, assign patients to the nearest facility, and display injuries on a map of the human body. This book uses a dozen case studies, ranging from federal institutions and state public health departments to private care providers, to explain how the program was implemented and to report the results. With GIS, health care workers will be able to access accurate information quickly and easily through an easy-to-understand visual medium.
