Geographical Information Systems (GIS) provides a powerful mapping tool for assisting in public health programs and health resource management. This enables policymakers and health workers to target services in accordance with the needs of different communities. This study uses GIS-based analysis to identify the relationship between spatial access, utilisation, quality and health outcomes of primary health care services in Tasmania. This research is useful to health professionals in identifying where health problems lie and for initiating ideas and actions to improve health access for disadvantaged or at-risk communities. It will be a solid foundation for external grants.
