Rockville, MD, Thursday, January 23, 2020 – Luis E. Bermudez, PhD, a long-time HSR.health Board member, started this year launching the GeoSolutions presence in the U.S. The formal announcement came via a blog post on their website along with an introductory letter from Luis to the Geospatial community.
Previously the Executive Director for Innovation at the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), the international standards-setting body for geospatial tech, in his new role, Luis will develop open source geospatial solutions for government, commercial, academic, and non-profit organizations in the U.S. and across the Americas.
Luis will continue on the HSR.health board to further the synergy between the two organizations. “Luis is a gifted technologist and a real thought leader in all things Geo”, says Ajay K Gupta, HSR.health CEO, “our two organizations working together will bring greatly expanded health analytics and clinical insights, leading to the identification of social factors influencing poor health outcomes as well as improved cost management.”
“Geospatial technology has a lot to offer the healthcare industry. HSR.health & GeoSolutions US together can bring health-focused geospatial technology to the market – providing intuitive visualization of the interaction between health outcomes and social determinants for our clients and integrated in existing health system workflows.”
HSR.health’s Global Health Spatial Data Infrastructure, called the GeoHealth Platform, is built on GeoNode and leverages the mapping, visualization, and data interoperability capabilities of GeoServer – both open source products, supported by experts in GeoSolutions.
