Facility Mapping

Decision-makers require timely, reliable information to fulfill their mandates of improving the health of the populations they represent. Moreover, the increased international and national attention that has been focused on the role of health in human and economic development has resulted in increasing resources being committed to improving health in all settings.

This requires good quality baseline information on the outcomes associated with the expenditures on health systems. It requires baseline evidence on the way health systems are currently functioning. The sweep and effective coverage of facilities is to be accessed. It requires the ability to monitor inputs, functions, and outcomes over time and to make the necessary modifications to strategies and policies.

   (a) Spatial changes in health status
   (b) Spatial epidemiology [study of factors affecting the health of population
   (c) Healthcare facilities accessibility and utilization

Each one of these topics has a spatial dimension, which means that GIS can be used for their studies. ‘Health care facilities planning’ is one of the planning fields that require spatial data in its resources allocation process. Health authorities have to carry out analysis of costs, benefits and health needs. This is quite a complex procedure as the information needed is extremely varied. GIS provides a useful technology in capturing, maintaining and analyzing the spatial data which could help in planning, development and monitoring the Health care facilities.

Identifying health care needs is one of the important tasks which health authorities frequently do. Health planners keep analyzing the changes that occur on health care demand. These changes usually require quick response from health authorities, in order to keep matching health care facilities supply with the relevant demand. This is a large task that needs huge set of data including health facilities location, catchment areas, population statistics, etc.

Information technology in general and GIS in particular can help the health authorities to make their required jobs in an efficient manner. For example GIS can be used to support health planners in reaching a decision regarding increasing hospitals capacities.

R2V Services has the experience to develop means of providing valid, reliable and comparable information to supplement the information provided by routine health information systems. The studies conducted by the company can he ever so helpful in building the evidence base necessary for policy-makers to monitor if health systems are achieving the desired goals, and to assess if additional investment in health is achieving the desired outcomes. Likewise this information can help sector like pharmaceuticals and NGO’s in getting baseline data overtime and be able to modulate their strategies accordingly. It provides an insight to policy-makers as well as business executives with the evidence they need to adjust their policies, strategies and programs as necessary.
