New technologies in health care are viewed in this chapter through two perspectives: how geographers have taken them up in their research, and how these technologies are creating new health care landscapes. In the first view, GIS has become instrumental in mapping diseases, understanding various populations and their contexts, and in health care planning (including emergency responses), all of which are facilitated by the rise of national health databases. In the second view, innovations such as telemedicine and virtual care are redefining how health care is provided and to whom; the chapter also focuses on the implications for understanding the health geographies of the elderly.
