Evaluating geographic relationship between people and provider by GIS
Authors: Lan Luo, Kelly Childers
Humana seeks to understand geographic relationships between members and providers, and has evaluated new Exchange members residing in Bexar County, Texas as a pilot example. The goal is to support solutions for any identified barriers for membersí access to providers. Geocode and Point Distance are the main geospatial tools, as well as table managements, proximity analyses, statistical analyses and mapping tools. This work was fundamental for the design of a pilot transportation project.
