Maptitude Mapping Software

HIPAA Mapping Software / HIPAA Compliant Mapping Software

Your data are more secure with Maptitude because Maptitude runs completely off-line and free from the cloud. Without your data ever leaving your computer, you can geocode/pin-map your addresses, perform analysis, and create maps. 

Maintaining the confidentiality of individuals is an important consideration in mapping health data. Although health data mapping is not addressed explicitly in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, pinpointing a location can enable determination of an individual’s identity, thereby violating the Privacy Rule. Maptitude has a variety of tools that support compliance with the Privacy Rule when mapping point data: 

  • Maptitude map layers can be turned on and off removing locational context
  • Maptitude maps can be zoomed out such that individual points are not easily discernible

Maptitude supports geomasking to preserve the confidentiality of individual health records. Examples of geomasking in Maptitude include:

  • Data aggregation (i.e., summing points within enumeration units such as counties or Census tracts)
  • Surface generation (i.e., calculating point densities)
  • Dot-density and scattering (i.e., Pushpins can be randomly placed either within a geographic enumeration area or within a distance of the location)

“This is awesome mapping software. We use it to create heat maps of where our patients live. This allows us to intelligently decide where to add services in our area.”
