A Shiny web app to find out how much medical procedures cost in your state.

May 8, 2013

Today the front page of the Huffington Post featured the new data available from the CMS that shows the cost of many popular procedures broken down by hospital. We here at Simply Statistics think you should be able to explore these data more easily. So we asked John Muschelli to help us build a Shiny App that allows you to interact with these data. You can choose your state and your procedure and see how much the procedure costs at hospitals in your state. It takes a second to load because it is a lot of data….

Here is the link the app. 

Here are some screenshots for intracranial hemmhorage for the US and for Idaho.
