Figures from this paper

preha: Establishing Precision Rehabilitation with Visual Analytics

Preha is a novel visual analytics application that incorporates functionalities for data preprocessing, storage, visualization, and predictive analysis on the basis of retrospective outcomes, and it is the first integrated solution of its kind.

MedCV: An Interactive Visualization System for Patient Cohort Identification from Medical Claim Data

A medical claim visualization system (MedCV) that supports cohort selection from medical claim data and enables domain experts to define high-quality inclusion rules in a time-efficient manner is introduced.

Visualization Techniques of Time-Oriented Data for the Comparison of Single Patients With Multiple Patients or Cohorts: Scoping Review

The visual comparison of measurements between single and multiple patients or cohorts is found to be underdeveloped, and is argued for further research in a systematic review, as well as the usefulness of a design space.

Sanguine: Visual analysis for patient blood management

Sanguine is introduced, a visual analysis tool for transfusion data and related patient medical records that was designed with two user groups in mind: PBM experts and clinicians who conduct transfusions.

Implementing an Application Programming Interface for PROMIS Measures at Three Medical Centers

A software integration of an Application Programming Interface service for administering and scoring Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) measures with the EHR system is created and evaluated.

A Visual Analytics Tool for Cohorts in Motion Data

The goal is to provide a flexible system for comparative visual analytics of cohorts in motion data, which provides full flexibility in defining cohorts, selecting time intervals and spatial dimensions, and adjusting the aggregation level of summarizations.

QualDash: Adaptable Generation of Visualisation Dashboards for Healthcare Quality Improvement

QualDash is presented, a dashboard generation engine that allows for the dynamic configuration and deployment of visualisation dashboards for healthcare quality improvement (QI) and a metric card metaphor is defined as a unit of visual analysis in healthcare QI, leading to a Metric Specification Structure (MSS).

Coral: a web-based visual analysis tool for creating and characterizing cohorts

Coral is a web-based cohort analysis tool designed to support the analysis of genomic data from cancer patients and therefore included in the public version data from the AACR Project GENIE, The Cancer Genome Atlas, and the Cell Line Encyclopedia.

A scoping review of clinical decision support tools that generate new knowledge to support decision making in real time

A scoping review to characterize clinical decision support systems (CDSS) that generate new knowledge to provide guidance for complex cases in real time found a number of CDSSs that generated new knowledge, although only 1 addressed confounding and bias.

THALIS: Human-Machine Analysis of Longitudinal Symptoms in Cancer Therapy

The approach leverages unsupervised machine learning methodology over cohorts of patients, and, in conjunction with custom visual encodings and interactions, provides context for new patients based on patients with similar diagnostic features and symptom evolution.



Interactive Visualization and Exploration of Patient Progression in a Hospital Setting

This work provides additional flexibility in analyzing patient data and has the potential to be used in a real-time hospital setting, and demonstrates the utility of the approach using a publicly available intensive care unit (ICU) database.

A Visual-Interactive System for Prostate Cancer Cohort Analysis

An efficient and effective visual-interactive system for the definition and analysis of patient cohorts is developed that provides an overview of large sets of patient records and allows medical researchers to interactively drill down to relevant patient cohorts.

Psychometric Properties of the PROMIS Physical Function Item Bank in Patients With Spinal Disorders

The PROMIS PF item bank adequately addressed outcomes of patients with spinal disorders as reliabilities were excellent, minimal ceiling/floor effect existed, and item bias was limited.

What Does a PROMIS T-score Mean for Physical Function?

The purpose of this research was to link PROMIS PF T-scores with physical function activities and provide a visual map of this linkage to aid in treatment assessment and address concrete patient education.

Design and evaluation of an interactive visualization of therapy plans and patient data

Both the usability evaluation and the user testing led to useful results and presented a very positive picture of the visualization and the exploration features of CareCruiser.

PROMIS PF CAT Outperforms the ODI and SF-36 Physical Function Domain in Spine Patients

The PROMIS PF CAT outperforms the ODI and SF-36 PFD in the spine patient population and is highly correlated, while taking less time to administer with fewer questions to answer.

Mining and exploring care pathways from electronic medical records with visual analytics

Temporal Event Sequence Simplification

This paper presents a series of user-driven data simplifications that allow researchers to pare event records down to their core elements, and presents a novel metric for measuring visual complexity, and a language for codifying disjoint strategies into an overarching simplification framework.

Supporting Iterative Cohort Construction with Visual Temporal Queries

COQUITO is designed, a visual interface that assists users defining cohorts with temporal constraints that was designed to be comprehensible to domain experts with no preknowledge of database queries and also to encourage exploration.
