Track: Hospitals and Health Systems
Authors: Kelsey Besse, Mary Senneka
HCT unmet need by custom market area was quantified and displayed using GIS. Geocoded transplant centers were used to establish age-specific market areas (Thiessen Polygons). ModelBuilder workflow and tools enabled accurate market area population estimates. This analysis highlights areas of greatest HCT need and revealed referral patterns. Data driven pages allowed custom displays of the results. This systems thinking approach supports efforts to address healthcare needs within the US.
