It’s my favorite time of year!
HealthLandscape is headed to the Esri User Conference in San Diego for a week of paper sessions, learning labs, technical demonstrations, and connecting with industry peers. We’re excited to get a closer look at ArcGIS Pro, try out Insights for ArcGIS, pick up some new Python and Leaflet skills, and, of course, wake up at 5:30 on Wednesday morning to run the Esri 5k along the San Diego waterfront.
If you’re heading to the conference, come check out our two maps featured in the Map Gallery. Our small-format submission features the changes scientists have seen in mosquito season, while our Story Map entry is a Swipe Map showing the significant impact of the Affordable Care Act on insurance coverage across the country.
While you’re there, be sure to stop by the User Applications Fair to get a demo of our newest site – the PHIT Communities Population Health Improvement Tool. Mark Carrozza and I are looking forward to showing how we’re helping communities improve population health by leveraging GIS and local, small area data.
PHIT Communities allows users to map small area estimates for chronic disease risk factors and health outcomes for the largest 500 cities across the U.S. To address areas of need and development population health improvements plans, PHIT Communities also includes data on clinical preventive services, healthy lifestyle choices, and access to primary and preventive care to help guide local decision making.
We’re honored that PHIT Communities has been selected as one of the eight applications featured in the User Applications Fair this year, and hoping that we’ll take home a top three finish for the seventh year in a row (vote for us!).
Can’t make the conference? We’ll be tweeting about the cool things we learn while we’re there, so follow us @healthlandscape to keep up!
Hope to see you there!
