Healthcare in the EU

Healthcare in the EU

An interactive portal to compare healthcare systems

How does the Spanish health care system compare to the rest of Europe? That was the main question that the Spanish Health Ministry wanted to answer when they came to us. The answer is Sanidad UE. An interactive data portal containing over 50 relevant indexes to compare the different health care systems across the EU-28 countries. From population indicators and lifestyle habits to Human Resources and preventive activities, the portal allows the user to cross-analyse these metrics in a simple manner. The data were obtained and homogenised from offciial sources such as Eurostat, WHO or the European Health for All database.

Our challenge with this project was to convey a huge quantity of technical information in a simple manner.  Fistly, we needed a clear-cut visual identity. For that, we relied on one of our usual partners: the branding professionals at Mubien. When joined with the selected visualisation techniques—interactive maps and graphs—, the clean design allows the user to navigate the enormous quantity of information the website offers in a swift way.
