Florida Department of Health Web Applications

Florida Department of Health

EPIC provided GIS and web development services to the Florida Department of Health, Division of Disease Control and Health Protection. We developed new and updated functionalities required to support 3 key GIS/Preparedness Web Apps: the DOH Environmental Health Water and Waste Water Inventory Web GIS Application, the EH Water Well Surveillance Web GIS Application, and the DOH Preparedness Hazard Vulnerability Assessment Web GIS Application intranet and internet services. The work of EPIC helps keep Floridians safe and healthy!

GIS and Web Applications for Water Surveillance

Workflow Automation

EPIC’s improvements include application and web tool development to bring critical preparedness GIS resources up-to-date with currently supported technology trends. These improvements position FDOH in a strong position for responding to natural and man-made hazards and are necessary to support ESF-8 functions. These upgrades increased their usefulness to first responders and deployed DOH employees in the event of an emergency.
