Visualization of Paradoxes behind US Health Care

10 09 2009

This video nicely explains the paradoxes behind the health care in US: why the US spends more to Health Care, but doesn’t make people healthier (but instead -some- wealthier). It vividly shows why reform is needed.

The video takes data from studies by Dartmouth and the OECD, and uses Gapminder to make the graphs come alive

An introductory Healthcare data tutorial kan be viewed here or at the New Scientist (which shows both video’s and the health data graph)

More information can be found at New Scientist and Discover (blogs)
