This is accomplished by a simple design consisting of an interactive map of the USA with locations of all providers programmatically mapped by zip code. Each provider location is shaded with a color scale of white to red, with red meaning all DRGs are covered at the provider location and white meaning none. Pricing is analyzed by generating a visual graph that depicts the breakdown of average payments and covered charges for all DRGs. The break down can be filtered by provider and state. By default the national averages are shown.
Interaction is by mouse-hovering. Contextual awareness is build into to all components, so when mouse hover over an item all components automatically update to reflect what is currently selected.
By examining the visuals and hovering over providers and states the user is able to distill the data and determine:
- The most affordable treatment centers
- Regional inpatient care availability for the 100 DRGs
- Inpatient care resource concentration
- Cost disparities of DRGs (nationally and state-wise)
- and many more.
This visualization can be useful not only to the public but also for policy makers who determine allocation of health care resources.
