This article from Critigen’s Community Health Team Leader, Kenny Ratliff, highlights what GIS can do for health data in our communities and nationally. Ratliff reviews how Critigen’s free app for the iPad allows users to understand how traditional BI (Business Intelligence) & GIS can come together to make big data and health data meaningful to professionals and ordinary people alike. With an increasing awareness of the cost of healthcare and the relative costs of prevention and treatment, health data are more important than ever to making wise investments in healthcare services and infrastructure.

Critigen, a GIS consulting & solutions company , has launched a free iPad app to help executives, health professionals and ordinary citizens visualize and understand the Community Health Status Indicators ( CHSI ).
