Google Maps System Enhancement for the Tasmanian Web-Based Epidemiology System
The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is the largest State Government agencies of Tasmania. The Department is responsible for delivering integrated services that maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of individual Tasmanians and the Tasmanian communities. The Department provides more than one and a half million occasions of service annually to clients. In addition to the services it provides directly, the Department also contracts or provides funding for a wide range of services within the private and non-government sectors.
This project supports evidence-based policy making. As the Australian health care industry consumes multiple billion dollars each year and generates a vast quantity of electronic data, the needs for managing health data and for developing the tools, techniques, and strategies for this work have never been greater. This project addresses fundamental cross-disciplinary issues of information processing in distributed and multiple domains with direct applications in healthcare, and bridge the gap between the research evidence and policy of healthcare.
