Free Healthcare Data for Use with Maptitude 2015!

We are excited to announce the release of five free healthcare map layers. We are providing over 4 million medical and healthcare provider points-of-interest. These locations can be analyzed with the tools and data already included with Maptitude such as counts by health insurance coverage type. The provision of the entire healthcare landscape in a mapping format is unprecedented.

Accountable care and better access to electronic health records are driving the use of Maptitude mapping software by healthcare providers to improve the health of their communities (more...). Maptitude is widely used to better target care interventions, to reduce readmissions, and to help hospitals qualify for incentives for service improvement.

The ability and desire to map health data has exploded. Out of the box, Maptitude 2015 with the U.S. Country Package provides detailed geographic data for the entire country that includes hospitals, emergency rooms, and pharmacies. The free addition of five comprehensive healthcare location databases ensures that Maptitude will continue to be at the forefront of the digital healthcare revolution.

Maptitude allows you to explore doctor, patient, and provider locations, verify compliance, map service territories, and conduct health-focused research. If you have any questions about Maptitude or data availability contact Caliper.

Featured Maptitude Map: Dentists per 10,000 Population by U.S. State

This month's featured map uses the locations of healthcare providers, found in the new Caliper Healthcare Provider layer, to show the per capita concentration of dentists in the United States. Massachusetts and Alaska stand out with around 1 dentist for every 1000 people!

Healthcare organizations now digitally store data that is inherently spatial such as patient records and hospital admissions. This information is analyzed with Maptitude to understand issues such as where patients are coming from and what types of patients have what types of health problems. This research supports improved efficiencies and better service provision. Links to various health-related studies using Maptitude can be found on our website.

Maptitude 2015 includes detailed data for the entire USA and is a powerful tool for researchers and analysts in the health sector. In addition, five free map layers can be downloaded (see below) to create an exhaustive mapping of the healthcare network.

Tricks & Tips: PDF & Vector Output 

Printing to PDF has the option to Optimize for Transparency. When Optimize for Transparency is chosen the map output is converted to a raster image before being printed. If you require vector output you need to uncheck this option and remove halos, shadows, and semi-opaque fill styles from your map.

When sharing vector output, such as PDF or EMF files, it is recommended that you use commonly installed fonts such as Wingdings for your point layer styles so that your recipients see the map layout as intended.
