Geospatial data is a location-specific data. The data contains natural geographical markers and man-made changes. For instance, natural markers include geolocation perimeter and man-made changes include global warming trends & pollution indexes. We strongly suggest that interweaving geospatial data, especially pollution index, with outpatient electronic health records can lead into detection of critical health markers and can make it possible to shift from reactive to preventive health care, thereby saving billions of dollars worldwide and improve overall health outcomes to outpatients. In this research paper, we propose an integration of geospatial data with the EHR and aim to solve one of the most important issues in outpatient healthcare “on-set of life-threatening diseases due to changes in geospatial”. Finally, the paper presents a prototyping solution design as well as its application and certain experimental results.
