2023 Together - PH345 - Leveraging Geospatial Analytics in Capacity Management: Visualization Matters - On Demand
A nearby hospital (250 beds) in the city of Lansing was relocating. Given the existing strain on our level 1 trauma center and our capacity and workforce challenges, we were interested in the impact of the move on our emergency department and hospital volumes. Leveraging geospatial analytics, we layered seven different areas, including public transportation routes, social determinants of health, public insurance, age, travel distance, ambulatory clinic locations and streets for analysis. We "moved" the hospital from its current location to the new location, looking at both current state (location) and future location. We had the ability to evaluate each layer or all the layers together in the analysis. During this presentation we will reveal the layers and demonstrate the analysis using geospatial visualization.
