Australia GIS Mapping Software for Health Care
Maptitude is a robust and easy-to-use professional health care mapping tool. Maptitude provides all the features that your organisation requires in order to take advantage of the geographic elements underpinning successful health care networks and medical services provision.
Maptitude costs only US$695 and is packaged as a one-stop-solution, shipping with all the tools and data required to allow hospital groups, managed care organisations, employer groups, and third party administrators (TPAs) to better operate in the competitive environment for delivering health care.
The dynamics of health and health care provision vary substantially across regions, and Maptitude allows you to map these differences in population density, age distribution, disease prevalence, race, ethnicity, poverty and the ability to access care. Maptitude includes the geocoding and geographic information system (GIS) tools that are critical in linking patient and population locations to local demographics to explore these relationships.
Wide use of the Maptitude GIS in health care supports research in the fields of public health, disease mapping, and epidemiology. Maps help to visualize health care information and enhance the understanding of the health care landscape. Maptitude mapping software enables users to find data about hospitals, health workers, at risk populations, and more:
- Map specific health variables
- Understand the overall health and morbidity of a population
- Look for clustering or locally elevated risks
- Analyse health care coverage to identify gaps or inefficiencies
- Examine patterns of health care utilization and/or access to care
- Match a network of health care specialists and providers to the needs of the population
- Offer members, patients and others "provider-locator" applications to help locate and select health care providers
- Choose optimal locations for new hospitals, outpatient clinics, or offices
- Deliver in-home medical services more efficiently
Mapping Doctor, Patient, and Provider Locations
Maptitude makes it easy to use maps to analyse and understand the locations of doctors and patients, and can help explore the best location for a new clinic or office. Maptitude is a powerful combination of mapping software and geographic data that provides everything that you need to make informed decisions. Maptitude can help answer questions such as "Where Are My Patients?", while the Maptitude for the Web application can provide a browser-based portal to allow the public to find their doctor, find the closest doctor, and to find the right doctor for their needs.
In addition to the latest demographics, Maptitude includes substantial social, housing, and income data, along with easy-to-use analysis tools that will allow you to better understand the relationships between the demand and supply of medical services. For example, the Maptitude Australia Country Package (available FREE with a Maptitude purchase or upgrade) includes comprehensive hospital locations and demographic data describing population, age distribution, income, level of education, and employment. These data provide a complete framework for exploring care provider locations.
As costs of delivering health care continue to rise, providers and administrators must do all they can to maximize efficiency and minimize waste. With Maptitude's location-based data and tools, health care planners can select optimal sites to best serve patient populations, achieve equitable service provision, and maximize access to health care.
Managed Care Network Territories
Maptitude can help to reduce unnecessary health care related costs and supports location-based decisions for health care services, network expansion, regulatory reporting and risk management.
Maptitude is used in the assessment of unmet health needs which provide a basis for addressing the requirements of a hospital's implementation strategies (community benefit plan), ensuring it is aligned with community needs (see an example case study here).
Many health care organisations and pharmaceutical companies use Maptitude for target marketing, management, and territory planning. For example, using the Maptitude GIS, medical supplies and equipment can be visually located and inventoried. Linking the physical location and condition of equipment or supplies in a large facility or distributed medical campus is a powerful management tool.
Maptitude mapping software gives you a suite of tools for defining care network service areas and for address/postal geocoding and validation. Unlike many other mapping and GIS software that require users to purchase data separately, Maptitude includes extensive geographic and demographic data so that you can get started fine-tuning health care networks as soon as you install the software.
Maptitude starts at only US$695 and is packaged as a one-stop-solution. Maptitude remains the most competitively priced professional health care mapping software available and is unique in the marketplace for the provision of comprehensive data and functionality in a single product for a single low price.

“Our applications to government healthcare authorities need to show locations of proposed equipment or practices, proximity to other healthcare organisations, patient catchment areas, incidence of illness by statistical local area and much more. Prior to MAPTITUDE our submission was based on WORDS rather than VISUALS. Maptitude has made it easier for us to build submissions and easier for healthcare authorities to review and approve.”
