There is a great number of complex data concerning the Austrian Health Care System. The goal was to process this data and present it to the general public on an easily accessible information platform. The platform focuses on data about the burden of disease of the Austrian Population, the available medical care and the services provided by the physicians. Due to the vast differences in the underlying source data, the methods used for the data acquisition range from statistical linkage over web scraping to aggregating data on the reimbursed services. The results are published on a website and are mainly displayed with interactive graphics. Overall, these dynamic and interactive websites provide a good overview of the situation of the Austrian Health Care System and presents the information in an intuitive and comprehensible manner. Furthermore, the information given in the atlases can contribute to the health care planning in order to identify distinctive service provision in Austria.
