Track and improve national health initiatives
From biospatial’s beginnings, we have focused our efforts on supporting national health initiatives. From biosurveillance to traffic safety to opioid overdose to disaster response and recovery, biospatial’s analytic platform is used by government entities to make better data-driven decisions.

Opioid use and overdose tracking
EMS and first responders attempt to combat opioid overdose deaths by administering one or more doses of Narcan (naloxone) immediately after arriving on scene whenever symptoms of an overdose are apparent or suspected. By using EMS data, biospatial's predictive analytics identifies trends in the use of naloxone by geographic location, date, and time. biospatial can track where, when, how, and by whom naloxone is being administered to assist EMS and health professionals in predicting drug overdoses and naloxone supply by region.
Through the ingest and analysis of large-scale EMS data, biospatial enables unprecedented and timely insight into syndromic anomalies that can be indicative of chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear agents (CBRN) threats. biospatial provides emergency responders and national security officials with intuitive alerts and relevant reports that enable better management of response operations and resources. biospatial's data-driven insights reduce response time, enhance response effectiveness, and help save lives.
By using EMS data in conjunction with crash reports, historical traffic, geospatial, demographic, and vehicle data, biospatial can help urban planners and transportation officials prioritize investments in highway infrastructure, road safety, and educational campaigns. By using recent EMS, traffic, and environmental data, biospatial provides an intuitive common operational picture to emergency responders, enabling improved management of response teams, and more rapid and effective response outcomes for highway emergencies. This can provide highway safety officials and automotive manufacturers with new tools for early indications of potential vehicle safety issues.
Disaster response and recovery
In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, local health care resources and facilities can become overwhelmed due to an increased need for emergency services and as a result of logistical and infrastructure challenges related to transportation, power, and communications. Emergency responders rely on health facility status information to determine where EMS patients should be routed during the response phase of a disaster. Traditionally, health facility status services are not necessarily timely enough to be actionable during rapidly changing disaster response conditions. biospatial supports post-response recovery missions by monitoring EMS and facility metrics and providing operational and clinical measures that are relevant to EMS operations.
