Event Title

Visualization Model for Anticipated Primary Care Provider Need Under the Affordable Care Act

Location

Hager-Lubbers Exhibition Hall

Start Date

2-4-2014 3:30 PM

Description

The goal of this project was to visualize the number of Primary Care Providers and the density of the 2012 insured population in each county in Michigan. Additional visualizations include the anticipated density of insured population under the new Affordable Care Act laws in each county. Using these visualizations I determined the additional number and anticipated location of PCP providers needed with regards to the new ACA laws implemented in 2014. As result I was able to develop a visualization model that can be applied to other locations in the US using the US Census Bureau statistics so that the necessary health care professionals could be made aware of the PCP need throughout the United States as each stage of the ACA is implemented. I hope with this information government, education and health officials can create the necessary steps to encourage the training and legislation to accurately address the additional PCP need.
