         Visualizing Electronic Health Record Data (Workshop)

A workshop of the IEEE VIS 2014 Conference (Paris, 9-14 November 2014)

Catherine Plaisant, Silvia Miksch, Theresia Gschwandtner, Sana Malik


Electronic Health Record (EHR) databases contain millions of patient
records including events such as diagnoses, test results, or medication
prescriptions. These records are an invaluable data source for clinical
research and improvement of clinical quality, as they provide longitudinal
health information about patient populations. The use of EHR databases
could be dramatically improved if easy-to-use interfaces allowed clinical
researchers and quality improvement analysts to explore complex patterns
in order to build and test hypotheses regarding the benefits, risks, and
appropriateness of treatments or medication regimens.

Novel strategies in information visualization and visual analytics are
needed.  The interest in this topic is growing at very rapid pace and is
very interdisciplinary by nature, both in term of field (medicine and
computer science) but also research environment (academic research as well
as industry and government agencies). Because of the European location of
the conference, we have a unique opportunity to create bridges and explore
new collaborations between groups that would have never met otherwise.

      Deadline:     JULY 25th 2014 (submit short paper to present)
