GIS stands for Geographic Information Systems. You maybe more familiar with it than you realise, most of us encounter GIS everyday without realising it. GIS lets us visualise data with the use of maps. The value lies in the ability to use GIS to question, analyze, and intepret data to understand relationships, patterns and trends. There is growing interest and awareness of the economic and strategic value of GIS for everyone.
Cost savings from greater service efficiency
Better decision making
Management over a wide geographic area
GIS helps to provide:
We provide a GIS and mapping service to Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS England Area Teams, GP Practices, Public Health, Community Health and Acute Hospital Trusts.
As well as the founder CCGs area of over 1,700 sq miles with a population of 1.5m, South, Central and West Commissioning Support (SCWCS) provides its GIS service to many additional organisations under Service Level Agreements or on an ad-hoc basis.
The Ordnance Survey Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) means that HealthGIS is now able to access digital map data and therefore provide services across the whole of England and Wales.
