Description

Promoting spatial accessibility to health care facilities has a significant effect on health care utilization, including hospital resource, nursing home resource and physician resource. Spatial accessibility emphasizes the importance of geographic barriers, such as spatial distance and availability of health care facilities. In this context, being able to measure and model the accessibility to health care facilities in space and time contributes a wider understanding of health care issues, which facilitates health care accessibility for patients.


This proposed session aims to bring together research focused on space and space-time analysis and modeling in terms of health care access. We would be delighted to see research from different perspectives, including computational algorithm and application as well as theoretical research. Examples of research topics would include:
-Development of spatial and space-time accessibility models
-Application of models to better understand access to health care facilities
-Analysis of geospatial patterns of health care accessibility
-Mobility analysis in the context of access to health care
-Measurement of spatial accessibility to health care facilities
-Optimization of health care accessibility
-Health care access and socioeconomic status
