Visual planning of strategic hospital portfolios.


The switch to a DRG-based health care payment system in Switzerland causes a big need for hospitals to reevaluate the profitability of their service portfolio under this new system. Consultants have developed a model to analyze portfolios and create future scenarios. In order to steer the strategy finding and communicate the results of this modeling, we developed an interactive visualization tool that allows dynamic interactions with this complex information in live strategy meetings.
