ARLINGTON, Mass. (PRWEB) February 13, 2019
GoInvo, a digital health design consultancy headquartered in Arlington, Massachusetts, today announced the release of the comprehensive visualization “Healthscape: Where Your Health Dollars Go” (https://www.goinvo.com/vision/healthcare-dollars), the latest in a series of open source research related to the US healthcare system. Healthscape is a map of the US healthcare system and its components. By following the allocation and flow of money in healthcare, the thread of how the organizations, departments, and major players are connected becomes apparent.
“The Healthscape visualization serves two purposes. The first is to provide the public and professionals interested in the healthcare space a way to increase understanding and explore how all the pieces fit together. The second is to give providers, patient advocacy groups, health policymakers, and health economists a visual communication tool to discuss issues at the higher health systems level,” said Juhan Sonin, director of GoInvo.
A PDF poster of the Healthscape visualization is available for download at https://www.goinvo.com/vision/healthcare-dollars. “It is core to our mission of transforming healthcare that we release open source research, like the Healthscape visualization, that draws attention to and informs people about the relationship between health expenditures and their healthcare,” said Sonin.
