Supporting Projects with Geo-Spatial Elements
With a GIS specialist on staff, NTI offers state-of-the-art geo-spatial mapping expertise for studies with injury location, transport distance, and time elements. Using publicly available census data along with other federal and state resources, NTI conducts a variety of analyses related to patient demographics, incident clustering, ground and air transport times, trauma center location optimization, and more.
Our study of the potential survivability of pre-hospital deaths relies on the analytical power of advanced Geographic Information Systems (GIS). NTI’s use of this technology introduces a whole universe of data related to demographics and spatial relationships, allowing for unique project designs to improve public health and safety through the advancement of trauma systems.Brian Eastridge, MD, FACS
