Use Case - Selecting the Right Location for Healthcare Facilities

Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

Hi Alter Nation!


I hope everyone's had a great week (TGIF) and staying safe. Before we log off to enjoy the weekend, I wanted to share a great use case from Altab Solutions.


Location, location, location.... is typically one of the most important factors to consider when identifying a new site for any type of business. For Altab Solutions, they wanted to evaluate additional criteria that would empower their clients to determine the right locations to build new healthcare facilities.





The challenges to solve: determine where to locate new physician clinics and to define what types of physicians should be staffed at each location. 



The solution: By using Alteryx spatial analytics and Curis Healthcare Demand Data, they were able to create an automated analytics process which helped their clients not only find locations for new facilities, but also which physicians specialties will most likely be in demand at each location!


If you are fed up with sifting through the convoluted government CMS data and trying to make sense of it, CLICK HERE. You'll find more information on how Altab Solutions was able to provide a more powerful report, quickly and cost effectively.


Signing off for the weekend!

Now more than ever, leveraging data to help strategically identify opportunities for expansion within hospital facilities is at the forefront of public health discourse in order to provide quality care to the growing patient population.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how healthcare providers and public health agencies can leverage self-service descriptive, predictive, and spatial analytics capabilities to identify the most promising locations for strategic expansion of their healthcare network and thus accomplish a key imperative in developing a high-value healthcare delivery system.
