Kindly shed more light on GIS
Sorry that I couldn't reply you since.

GIS
Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking and displaying data related to positions on the Earth’s surface. It's of great importance, because all activities or things on earth are position or location related.

It allows us to view, understand, question, interpret and visualize data in ways that reveals relationship, patterns and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports and charts. With GIS technology, people can compare the locations of different things in order to discover how they relate to each other.

GIS IN HEALTH
The benefits of Geographic Information System (GIS) is numerous, but i will look at some of the benefits of GIS to healthcare.

Identifying Health Trends
The software offers healthcare professionals the ability to identify health related trends and more thoroughly target healing efforts based upon those results.

The utilisation of GIS in health trend identification includes cancer surveillance, heavy metal poisoning monitoring and other environmental health related studies.
In cancer surveillance programme, assess to demographic data, such as home address, workplace, cancer type, and even data collected from wearable health tech of all patients entered into the system can be collected, georeferenced and mapped. Healthcare professionals can visualize the locations of patients and determine if there are clusters of specific types of cancer associated with similar working conditions or residential areas.

In heavy metal poisoning monitoring and other environmental health related studies, GIS can be used to know if the occurrence is close to a mine (eg lead poisoning), source of water, nearness to heavily sprayed farm and close to an industry with large effluent discharge.

Tracking the Spread of Infectious Disease
Occurrence: GIS can help in knowing the occurrence of diseases (where diseases occurs).

Causes: It also can help in tracing the root cause of the disease.
Prevalent rate: GIS helps in knowing the occurrence rate of a disease. This will help to know how severe it is.

Spread: GIS can help in monitoring how a disease is spreading, the rate at which the infectious disease is spreading and direction of spread.

Checkmating: GIS can help in curbing the spread of an infectious disease and also in eradicating it.

Improving and Staffing of Health Facilities
The use of GIS technology can enable Health management board to work more closely with hospitals to take larger steps in addressing healthcare needs. The system can help identify which neighborhoods are in greater need of specific health services such as more pediatric centres, maternal facilities and vaccination centres. Analysis of demographic data and knowledge of some occurrence such as the rate of snake bite, can help in knowing the specialty of healthcare workers needed in a facility and types of vaccines and drugs that is more needed in a health care facility.

The Business of Health Care Geographic
The use of GIS in the private health sector encompasses applications in marketing and business management as well as those concerned with patient care.

Health care providers can no longer afford to indulge in the "build it and they will come" fallacy. Health care is a business and to be competitive they need to be located conveniently to their customer base.

Also health care providers can find new markets by increasing the range of services they offer based on an analysis of patient needs, both present and future, in their market area. This allows growth without requiring relocation. Another strategy involves identifying and cultivating a hospital's most profitable services. This strategy includes studying competitors to learn about the services they offer and populations they serve and to gauge how profitable they are.

Using GIS for demographic analysis to estimate the demand for various types of services can also benefit individual physicians. How consumers access the services of managed health care providers is controlled by geographic location. Matching physician locations to where employees live or work assures that primary care physicians are available throughout the network and that the types of specialties required by specific populations are located reasonably close to these populations.

Public HealthCare Planning
GIS can help in knowing the distribution of health facilities and the distance travelled by patients to these facilities. It can help in knowing areas been served and areas least served. Also GIS can help in creating the best suitable location for a health care facility which is easily accessible with shorter distance to the patients. This can help healthcare provider and planners in health facility planning.

Health Care Research
GIS can help in collecting and storing data which could be used in current and further health care research.

DrGoodmanFather:


Chairman. You need to know more than SPSS.
Data Analyst does not only work in Research environment, they are needed in all environments and the job is the future.
Here in the US, you must know Python or R. Know Excel.

Also, you master one or two software like Power Bi , Tableau and you are guaranteed $75k plus a year.
Thanks for this. Is it compulsory to get at least a degree in statistics in order to qualify for the job you mentioned earlier?
