Blood transfusion is a frequently performed medical procedure in surgical and nonsurgical contexts. Although it is often necessary or even life-saving, it has been identified as one of the most overused procedures in hospitals. Unnecessary transfusions not only waste resources but can also be detrimental to patient outcomes. Patient blood management (PBM) is the clinical practice of optimizing transfusions and associated outcomes. In this paper, we introduce Sanguine, a visual analysis tool for…

The association of inpatient blood utilization and diagnosis‐related group weight: implications for risk‐adjusted benchmarking

The association of red blood cell use and diagnosis‐related group (DRG) weights across all inpatient hospital stays was analyzed to determine the suitability of using DRGs for between‐hospital risk‐adjusted benchmarking.

Composer: Visual Cohort Analysis of Patient Outcomes

This article introduces Composer, a visual analysis tool for orthopedic surgeons to compare changes in physical functions of a patient cohort following various spinal procedures, and develops a prototype cohort analysis tool to help clinicians assess patient treatment options by analyzing prior cases with similar characteristics.

A Framework for Externalizing Implicit Error Using Visualization

A framework for externalizing and analyzing expert knowledge about discrepancies in data through the use of visualization formalizes the notion of data discrepancies as implicit error, both in global health data and more broadly.

A Framework for Creative Visualization-Opportunities Workshops

This paper presents the results of a 2-year collaboration in which the use of 17 workshops in 10 visualization contexts were analyzed, and creates a framework for CVO workshops that identifies a process model for using workshops and describes a structure of what happens within effective workshops.
