CALIFORNIA HEALTHCARE FOUNDATION

This is an interactive infographic for the HITECH Act, a federal healthcare modernization initiative. The California Healthcare Foundation wanted to show how these funds were distributed and make it easy for the viewer to see that some programs fall under the umbrellas of others. It was my task to design and program the tree-map for their website.

The final piece included the main treemap programmed with jquery to allow the viewer to stay on one page while navigating the information. Tooltips were heavily used to display ancillary information loaded through Ajax. Finally, an interactive timeline is included with tooltip modal boxes for every node. A simple yet thorough visualization of this federal program.
