Tuesday, 13th June 2017
3 pm, Campus Villach, Audimax
GI-Alumni Azmat Arif talks about her research dealing with catchment areas of medical facilities providing insight into the reach, quality and utility of healthcare provision. While different approaches exist to calculate such catchment areas, each one differs according to the context in which a hospital catchment area is defined. The use of mobile phones has now blurred the concept of spatial barriers by eliminating the absolute need for physical proximity in order to access a service.
