Drive-time & Demographic Analysis for a Medical Distribution System


Medco Inc. distributes medical supplies to Chicago urban area hospitals. They like to get a sense of 65 minute drive time distances around their four warehouses. They might subcontract requirements greater than 65 minutes. Keeping an eye on the general population trends and comparing those population records to trending medical situations helps them gauge the appropriate stocking levels of particular medical supplies and equipment. This customer map view also provides a sales territory map for strategic planning and hospital location map visualizations. They develop their supply routes based on the size of hospitals, delivering to small hospitals and larger hospitals based on supply requirements and truck sizes and availability. Medical supply deliveries is a dance and business mapping software helps set the timing.
