Spatially Health Launches Map to Show Areas of Vulnerability to Manage the Impact of the COVID-19 Outbreak

Using reliable data sources and predictive modeling, the map offers a tool to mitigate the impact of the virus in vulnerable areas.

MIAMI — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 27, 2020 — Spatially Health’s COVID-19 Local Vulnerabilities Map compiles demographic data, population and population density figures, the prevalence of known risk factors for the virus and the number of residential care facilities in an area. That data, taken from reliable sources, is then used to calculate an area’s vulnerability score. This measurement can be used to develop prevention and mitigation strategies, prioritize and coordinate the deployment of scarce resources and testing sites, plan for the workforce’s safe return to business and the measured reopening of the economy.

“This tool, which we’ve developed in response to this outbreak, uses geo-spatial data to pinpoint higher-risk areas across 500 cities in the U.S.,” said Hillit Meidar-Alfi, Ph.D., CEO of Spatially Health. “We’ve shown the value of using existing data, pulled from reliable sources like the Census Bureau and the CDC, to solve real-time problems, including managing the impacts of this global pandemic. Our map can be imperative for entities wanting to build a comprehensive and effective approach.”

Spatially Health, headquartered in Coral Gables, Florida, with an office in Haifa, Israel, optimizes and translates data into information that healthcare business stakeholders can use to turn conceptual strategies into practical operations.
