Health 2


The National Health System aims to improve the health and lives of citizens through care, education and prevention activities. Italy has a public-owned healthcare system offering a high level of training for people working in the fields of medicine, nursing and research. These data appear in comparison with other countries of the European Union.

The professionalism of the system affects the quality of the provided infrastructure and services, but as we reviewed the data, we had the impression that the health system revealed geographical differences.
So our research is driven by issues like these: Do we have a national health system or are we dealing with regional or local health systems?
Why these differences? tries to describe the economic / social issues that are rooted around this topic.

By analyzing the data supported by the National Statistical Institute, we drew a path that describes the proposal made by the public service by comparing investment, infrastructure and guaranteed benefits.
Then we focused on the consumer's demands, focusing on the interest in perceiving the health service and the most common types of illness to find out the causes and links and the complexity that surrounds them. The emerging reality reveals the existence of many health systems with deep territorial disparities at regional and even provincial levels. The overall picture of the system is a system of structurally complex and fragmented system that is not always clear in its interactions and communications with citizens.

In order to investigate the reasons why people are moving around Italy for medical advice or treatment, we tried to see if there are suitable doctors across Italy and to observe the possible links between the presence of these important figures and the index of attracting individual cities. or Italian regions.
Take a look and appreciate if the presence of remarkable doctors from a scientific and a median point of view can affect this health mobility and push people to specific healthcare settings. We also tried to check if there are important individuals involved in the so- Alternative drugs that could affect these migration flows.

So we went on. We received a list of pathologies, and in each of them we ranked physicians with scientific and media visibility. At the same time, we repeated the same research methodology and used it in the field of alternative medicine.
The end result is also from a series of protocols we used, combining a normal Google survey with other online tools such as Google Scholar, Zotero, Scraper, Issue Discovery, Versus, and Biomed Expert. With the Cytoscape software we have perfected, developed and visualized the collected data.
