The Access Standard

Developed by health care consultants specifically for the managed care industry, GeoNetworks is more than a network accessibility tool with mapping features. It is a powerful software tool that effectively and efficiently determines provider network accessibility. With GeoNetworks’ flexible access standards, ready-to-use page templates, customizable maps and numerous report options, you can make more informed decisions and provide a higher level of health services.

Accurate Geocoding

When your address data is limited to five-digit zip codes, GeoNetworks knows what to do. The built-in representative geocoding functionality assigns each employee and/or provider a location based on population distribution within a zip code and surrounding area, which is a definite improvement over more simplistic forms of placement.

Customizable Reports

Customized GeoNetworks® reports allow you to support a variety of departments within your organization. Predefined report pages include everything you need to meet specific project requirements. From title page to basic access analysis reports to sophisticated search reports and thematic maps, GeoNetworks® creates those requested by most consulting firms and employers.

Powerful Mapping

GeoNetworks includes high-resolution zip code, county, and state boundary files and city points as well as interstate, U.S., and state highways. Additionally, the product integrates seamlessly with GeoAccess’ street-level data product. Whether your network covers a single city or the entire nation, GeoNetworks produces maps that can be defined and viewed for any part of the United States on a state, county, zip code, census tract, block group or street level.

Flexible Data Input And Output

With unmatched flexibility and agility, GeoNetworks® supports many popular PC data management packages, and can easily import multiple file formats. You can browse or edit data files using GeoNetworks®’ built-in data management tool, or call your favorite database management system software from within the program.

Distance Calculations

GeoNetworks automatically calculates the distance between providers and members or employees, giving you the ability to perform the analysis based on estimated driving time or distance and straight-line distance.
