ArcGIS Server
A user can define which combination of values to obtain for
respiratory disease (by name/type or ICD9&10 MRD codes), as
well as gender, age, admission period, statistical methods,
classification methods, legend range, geometry/scale.
Asthma Camps
One of our Community Outreach Programs, Asthma Camps, is designed to
assist children with chronic asthma, their guardians, healthcare providers, peers
and the general public to recognize, assist and respond to the many issues
surrounding this debilitating disease.
Asthma Camps
The New Brunswick Lung Association maintains an historical database on
Asthma hospitalization cases in the province dating back to 1990. Data is
stripped of personal identifiers, but retains a postal code for geo-referencing
purposes. Data is masked, aggregated, and statistically altered before being
Asthma Camps
Health outcome data (e.g. ICD 9 and 10, hospital
discharge) is integrated with corresponding population
and geospatial parameters, then statistically modeled.
Asthma Camps
Statistical outputs are in turn mapped according to several geometric features
(available on our WFS): Provincial boundaries, Health Regions, Census Divisions
(Counties), Census Subdivisions (Municipalities), Forward Sortation Areas,
Dissemination Areas.

Plan Interventions
Build Awareness / Access
When the spatial distribution of Asthma Camp participants’ origins
overlays the spatial distribution of Asthma hospitalization outcomes,
our program directors, project funders, healthcare planners and
providers are readily able to determine significant historical gaps and
future opportunities for the Program.
