We are interested in visual technologies that move us: how digitally created imagery affects human emotion, thinking and behavior. Our work spans computer graphics, human-computer interfaces, visualization, psychology and design.
Data Visualization in Healthcare: a working meeting discussing best practices and ideas for meaningful presentation of data
The amount of data being collected in healthcare is now immense and there are promised benefits of improved patient care, improved efficiency, and reduced costs with the analysis and presentation of the findings from this data. A clinically meaningful presentation of the data will be important to realize these benefits and "data visualization" is important. But what does "data visualization" really mean? Is it a chart, an answer to a question, a line graph? Are there data visualization standards that can be followed for presenting different types of information? What are the best ways to determine how best to present information to clinicians?
This is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to brainstorm and discuss what is known about how best to address some of these questions. While Todd and Ross will present the questions we'll seek to answer in the context of their healthcare environment, the discussion and output from this discussion will be applicable to any domain where the presentation of data/results of analysis of this data is important.
If you're coming, please RSVP with the button below. Also, please forward this email to whomever you think meet be interested.
