Every summer, tens of thousands of geo-enthusiasts descend upon San Diego, CA to learn from and connect with industry peers, get the latest information on new technologies, try out new applications, see ground-breaking innovations from other industries, and develop new skills.
This year’s conference is quickly approaching, and we’re getting ready to spend a week talking about the work we’re doing and hearing from others about how they’re helping to improve health across the country and around the world. There are nine health-related paper sessions on the agenda this year, and HealthLandscape will be featured in two of them. If you’ll be at the Esri User Conference, plan to attend our talks during the Place Based Health and Progressing Access to Care sessions. Mark Carrozza will be talking about our Community Vital Signs API, a novel way to place patient outcome data in the context of patient communities. I will be discussing the initial results of research on health care quality measures – specifically, whether competition and proximity to other health care organizations affects performance and health outcomes. We’re both looking forward to presenting our work and getting feedback from our peers.
In addition to the paper sessions and technical demonstrations, the conference features a User Application Fair. This year, the applications are moving out of the EXPO and will be showcased in the Map Gallery hall. The HealthLandscape Health Workforce Mapper will be among the entries – come check out the distribution of physicians and non-physicians in your community, and cast a vote for our app while you’re there.
Not able to attend the conference? We’ll be tweeting about the cool things we learn while we’re there, so follow us @healthlandscape to keep up! Both HealthLandscape presentations will be available after the conference, and we’ll feature a full conference recap on the blog.
Hope to see you there!
