Visualizing The Health Care Reform

By Admin, August 31, 2012


When looking for a visual representation to show the development of the health care reform over time, I decided on the subway map metaphor, grouping main categories by color. The labelled circles inside the map can be understood as subway stations, stopping at milestones as they progress downwards along the ten year reform timeline. The result is a flow that shows the starting and end points for both insured and uninsured citizens (whose situation hopefully improves) and clarifies the main applications of the reform: Using this visualization, a reader can pause at each stop and read the corresponding bill. Some entries have been included without having a connection to a starting point because of their relevance.
