Description#DoveTiCuri is a datavisualization showing mortality and survival outcomes for each hospital in Italy for a large range of pathologies. It is a searchable object/web app from which users can compare different hospitals around them to better understand the quality of the health care centers around them and nationally. The data comes from the Health Ministry but it is not commonly available for the citizens, "as they normally don't have enough understanding of what the data itself means", as they usually say. We believe that access to this kind of data should be granted to all citizens, because in Italy the health system is public funded and so it is right that citizens could monitor how money invested perform in terms of quality. And also because we believe that a tool like #DoveTiCuri is a way of empowering readers in better understanding public spending. At the moment we are developing a business idea, in order to keep the platform alive with a freemium model, but to try to monetize providing more services through Big Data analysis and in depth personalized researches on the databases. We are currently talking to investors and further details cannot be disclosed at the moment.
