Want to better understand information on the use, payment, and hospital charges for more than 3,000 U.S. hospitals that received IPPS (Inpatient Prospective Payment System) payments in the United States?
This application has been designed to help you easily visualize this publicly available data - all of which has been published by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
You can sort and filter by any column straight from the data table. The "Provider Name" column has been pinned as well, allowing you to easily scroll through the different metrics.
Using the let menu, you can open the Geo Map where you can quickly narrow down the visualization by a specific state or select a specific provider.
The Metrics dropdown located above the map provides a range of further options. The circles representing the providers will change in color and size depending on the metric selected, providing intuitive visual feedback.
And, if you want to see how a specific hospital compares nation-wide and within its own state, simply select that hospital in order to visualize the national and state frequency distribution for all available metrics as well as where your provider stands within that distribution.

For our data engine we used OpenSearch while the base map tiles were provided by OpenStreetMap.
