He cites an example of an analyst who’s doing geospatial analysis to look at how services are available for people who are suffering substance abuse disorders. By informing that insight, he can take his analytics to policymakers so they can make better decisions. That drives better collaboration with state government, with care providers and also with federal government. But really, it improves the availability of health services to infected populations.
