The California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) has selected a company to develop a Rich Internet Application (RIA) for the next generation of its “California Health Care Atlas”. The new web-based atlas will integrate interactive mapping, reporting, and charting elements with a dynamic real-time interface to tell the healthcare story in California, allowing a broad spectrum of users the ability to investigate and learn about the human health and healthcare landscape in California. The goal of the atlas is to help OSHPD staff enhance their understanding of health care issues by presenting sophisticated analyses of California healthcare trends in a an easy-to-explore and easy-to-understand manner.
For information on these developments in California and how they are using GIS technology, please read the full article at: http://www.directionsmag.com/press.releases/index.php?duty=Show&id=23306
