This project involved taking data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and making it accessible to users.

Really, the heavy lifter on this project was my colleague, Bill Couch. A talented and hard-working desiger/programmer, he really went the extra mile to make this project be as user-friendly as possible.

We hope to expand on this project in years ahead with additional data. Stay tuned.

Fall media previews

As of this writing, the music component hasn’t launched yet, but it’s coming soon. The movies, books and television features are live, however.
Take a look!
