Location data is crucial to community health by answering questions about health resources access and influence.
Are providers who accept Medicaid (especially specialists) either in areas where Medicaid clients live or within walking distance of bus routes?
Are there healthy food sources in all areas of the community?
Does every neighborhood offer fitness alternatives that are attractive to the neighborhood culture?
Do mental/behavioral resources offer means of access that protect privacy?
Are there clustering patterns in location of health risks that indicate local opportunities to intervene for health improvement
