Track: Public Health
Authors: Marguerite Weber
VHA implemented HBPC programs across the US to provide care to Veterans who have complex heath care needs in their home. GIS allows us to more effectively organize panel management and emergency services. Portal provides the HBPC teams access to secure data and prepopulated map templates within VA firewall. The ease of Portal extends the use of GIS across agency to non-GIS professionals. This presentation will highlight the HBPC GIS Pilot program and the lessons learned throughout the process.
