Hospital rankings vs. public interest. How do they relate, and how do these connections impact U.S. hospitals?
Trejo Consulting looks at who the best U.S. hospitals are to discover relationships between published hospital rankings and public interest in these institutions—uncovering questions about the importance of public interest and how this data can be used to influence a hospitals growth strategy.

The work of talented young researchers such as Erez Lieberman Aiden, showing us that a micro-system as densely complex as the physical arrangement of the human genome can be mapped, is inspiring for the prospect of mapping our complex health care system.

For those who struggle in the U.S., and around the world to tackle increasingly complex healthcare challenges for growing populations the concept of a comprehensive health care map is a far off and vague concept at best.
Complex data is often difficult to comprehend, and more difficult to meaningfully arrange. Healthcare data is complex, difficult to obtain, vast in scale (and at some levels totally unique), multi-source, and very dynamic.
We human’s can easily understand complex data when represented visually, and projects leveraging the power of data visualization have been growing in popularity. Larger scale projects are being tackled, and groups at MIT and Harvard have teamed up to tackle a particularly large one—visualizing global economic data. The Atlas of Economic Complexity weaves together singular threads of global economic information in to a picture of prosperity. The project helps us see what global prosperity looks like (and more importantly where there is a lack of it) around the world.
What does this triumph of economic data visualization mean for healthcare? Well, the simple question is, “Why don’t we have a U.S. health care map?”
Trejo Consulting is spending a lot of time thinking differently about how we can work together and innovate to solve healthcare challenges. We are not interested in why we don’t have a U.S. healthcare map, we are only interested in how we can start developing one. A visual healthcare landscape where data related to access, cost, quality, health reform, and other important healthcare issues can be visualized and more easily understood would benefit all of us.
We are interested in solving healthcare challenges, and look forward to hearing from you about how we can work together.
