Using geographic information systems and geospatial data to identify and address social determinants of health in clinical practice and training

Training primary care providers to use of geospatial data and geographic information systems (GIS) systems has the potential to improve patient outcomes both at a local level, as well as a national level as graduates disperse to diverse practice locations. This study examines best practices and effective models of integrating geospatial data and GIS into clinical care and provider training.
