Location based services are increasingly important, especially when it comes to accessing health information and services. Over the past year and a half, AIDS.gov, a program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of HIV/AIDS Policy, has been collaborating with other Federal agencies (CDC, HUD, SAMHSA, among others) to develop an HIV/AIDS prevention and service locator. This new tool combines key Federal HIV/AIDS programs such as HIV testing, mental health services, health centers, substance abuse clinics, and housing services. Each of these programs is run by a separate agency and pulls information from a wide range of sources. Beyond addressing what it took to get each agency to collaborate and push their data in a consumable format, this presentation will focus on the steps AIDS.gov took to create this locator service. We take a technical approach to discuss the GeoRSS standard, how we built the service using mostly JavaScript, and how we pushed this service to mobile, standard web, and native application platforms. We will also talk about the iterative design and development process, and we tie it all together with the big ticket: the sweet spot of location, mobile, and health. We cover it all, location, Health IT, and Gov 2.0.
