Season 1 | Episode 10: A Family Doctor's GIS Story

Better Health Care Enabled by “Where”

Some patients travel more than two hours to spend 15 minutes with their family doctors. That’s not unusual in Nova Scotia. How can geospatial technology help people get easier access to medical care? In this episode, Guan talks to Ajantha Jayabarathan, also known as Dr. AJ, a family doctor practicing in Halifax. She shares her stories and vision for how GIS can underpin a more accessible, efficient and inclusive health care system.
