Abstract—Understanding how Brazilian health units have been reimbursed due to services provided on behalf of the Brazilian Public Unified Health System (SUS) is not a simple task. It requires the analysis of a myriad of data and hampers the identification of flaws as well as improvement opportunities regarding the budget application in the context of health public services. In this paper, we proposed an infrastructure to support the visual analysis of data from SUS related to services provided by licensed health units. To illustrate the use of proposed infrastructure, we conducted an example of use that analyzes the performance of licensed health units from the Brazilian Northeast region in a specific time interval.

Index Terms—Brazilian public unified health system, health information systems, information visualization.
