Health Spending Explorer
The Health Spending Explorer on the Peterson-Kaiser Health System Tracker helps users examine five decades worth of numbers documenting expenditures by federal and local governments, private insurers, and individuals on 15 categories of health services, including hospitals, physician & clinic care, and prescription drugs. The data – which spans from 1960 to 2013 – is drawn from the National Health Expenditure Account, and will be updated with each new data release.
The Explorer’s custom-made charts are easily shared through email, Twitter and Facebook, and can be embedded on a web site.
A short video tutorial provides instructions for the tool.
A partnership of the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Peterson Center on Healthcare, the Peterson-Kaiser Health System Tracker is an online information hub dedicated to monitoring and assessing the performance of the U.S. health system.
