In partnership with athenahealth, Fathom created a visualization that shows how patients move through their healthcare network. The interactive application depicts more than ten million patient-to-healthcare interactions over a single day. The graphic shows athenahealth’s services, broken up into four color coded parts: from the first office visit (purple), to a patient’s activity on the web portal (orange), to labs and order transactions (blue), and then to processing of insurance claims (green), depicting activity across their entire network.
