Mapping Portal Development

With healthcare in the news every day, wouldn’t it be nice to have current, unbiased data at your fingertips to help you visualize how these challenges may impact the nation or your community?
Using our existing mapping portal as a template—complete with our 15 provider-level datasets, healthcare workforce, demographic, health determinants/indicators and nine mapping tools—we’ll work with you to create a customized mapping interface to help your stakeholders and staff visualize solutions to healthcare issues.

Mapping Portal SampleMapping portals are a cost-effective way to display your data along with our workforce data on the internet to your stakeholders and to the public. We’ll work directly with you to create a mapping portal that has your branding and data to be able to answer the following questions:

  • Is there equitable disparity across all of the professions in rural vs. urban workforce distribution?
  • Where are the areas in the state with higher patient populations with multiple chronic diseases?
  • How different are the socio-economic determinants in my area of concern or across the state?
  • How will aging workforce impact access to care?
  • Are healthcare training opportunities available in rural areas?
  • What is the distance from my clinic to the hospital?
  • What is the service area around the hospital/clinic?
  • How many people are potentially served within 45 minutes or 45 miles of a healthcare facility?
  • How many dentist or dental hygienists are within 25 minutes of my town?

Portals

National Healthcare Workforce Portal

NCAHD, with other stakeholders, has created a FREE internet-mapping portal to demonstrate the type/quality of healthcare workforce data that our center can provide through our products and services. Within the portal, you have the ability to visualize multiple datasets interactively, perform distance analysis, download aggregate forms of both healthcare workforce and demographic data, and create simple maps. We can use this portal as a template and work with you in building a customized internet portal interface that includes your own data and branding (logo, etc.) to make the portal unique to your needs.

Please contact us for a free half-hour webinar on how to use the portal and discussion of what our unique internet-mapping portal can do to meet your specific needs.

Tennessee Rural Partnership’s Healthcare Information Portal (TRP-HIP)

Tennessee Rural Partnership (TRP) was founded in 2006 by four state medical schools, the Rural Health Association of Tennessee, and other associations/stakeholders representing rural health in Tennessee. Its purpose is to address the increasing challenges of providing healthcare in rural and underserved areas across the state by assisting in the recruitment, placement, and retention of physicians and other health professionals. In 2012, TRP became an operating subsidiary of the Tennessee Hospital Association (THA). TRP works with THA to integrate our overall mission to fulfill the workforce needs of rural and underserved communities in our state.

In 2010, NCAHD partnered with the Tennessee Hospital Association in building the Tennessee Health Information portal (THIP) for use by their hospital members and staff in supporting the identification and placement of rural physician providers throughout Tennessee.
