About Us

HSR.health is a global leader in health-focused geospatial data analytics. We support the public health and emergency response communities as well as all organizations impacted by health crises with novel indices that deepen the understanding of health issues, global and local, to better anticipate and mitigate those health crises. With a team of talented clinicians, public health analysts, data scientists, geospatial engineers, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and cybersecurity experts, HSR.health is dedicated to remaining on the forefront of healthcare technology innovation – pushing the boundaries of what is possible to anticipate.

HSR.health’s novel indices, used to assess and predict the likelihood of disease transmission and mortality (called the Transmission Risk Index and the Mortality Risk Index, respectively), were utilized by the World Health Organization (WHO) during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In conjunction with the WHO, we utilized these models in Africa and Central America to gain insights into the events that identify potential human-to-human transmission of a viral contagion as well as the broader market impacts stemming from transmissions.

We believe the answer to solving public health challenges lies in the power of technological innovation, especially leveraging social determinants of health data to provide insights on the why of health inequality.

We find that why with powerful data algorithms on broad sets of geocoded social, environmental, and health data, strategic partnerships that span the industry, and data-rich geospatial mapping and visualization.
