Geographic Information System, Knowledge Differences, Spreading of Disease



Health care is one area that requires a technological development. The development of the world of health services can not be removed with the need for presentation of data information that can be processed more accurately using an information technology software. A training of data processing using GIS application for health personnel in Puskesmas should be provided to support the knowledge of the main health officer in health data processing officer in order to have the ability to use geographic information system. The purpose of this study was to analyze differences in knowledge of healthcare workers before and after basic training of health data processing using GIS. This research is an experimental analytic research with cross sectional design. This research was conducted at Puskesmas working area of Health Office of Kulon Progo Regency, Yogyakarta. The samples are officers of health centers in the region of the Department of Health Kulon Progo as many as 25 people. The independent variables is variable basic training, while the dependent variable is the knowledge of health workers. Technical data analysis in this research is with statistical test that is Paired t-test to know difference before and after done tretmen or certain treatment on sample. From the statistical test using paired t-test p = 0.00 obtained with α = 0.05, which means that H0 received so there are attendant knowledge before and after basic training of health data processing using GIS.
