Patient "Hot Spotting" - How GIS Helped An Organization Cut Healthcare Costs By 50%

Source: ESRI

The health care system in the US is burdened by “super utilizers”, patients that account for up to 30 percent of health care costs. These patients are admitted through the ED, hospitalized, and then discharged, only to return seeking care again. To fix this growing problem, providers are mining clinical data to identify these patients and find cost-effective solutions to keep them out of the hospital. An emerging effort is “Hot Spotting”, a process that helps organizations focus on patients with a history of preventable utilization. By combining EHR and community data with Geographic Information System (GIS) technology, providers can create “hot spot” maps that characterize the geographic extent of the problem, possible causes, and potential intervention plans.
