Onde você mora reflete em sua saúde tanto como dieta ou genética, mas não faz parte do seu histórico médico. Na TEDMED, Bill Davenhall mostra como dados geográficos (de frequência de ataques cardíacos a depósitos de lixo tóxico) despercebidos pelo governo podem se juntar a aparelhos de GPS móveis, e manter doutores informados. É chamada de "geo-medicina".
