Over the last several blogs, we have progressed from personalizing data by looking at unique data sets to creating data selfies based on the Dear Data project. These reflections have taught us that analyzing data from personal, non-traditional data sources enhances our understanding of the data’s value and opens our eyes to new and meaningful ways to tell the data’s story.
We are taking these insights and bringing them back to the work we do everyday with our customers, as we use data in innovative ways that bring value to healthcare organizations and the patients they serve. While it is fun, invigorating, and even relaxing, to share data via hand drawn data visualizations, it’s not typically the sustainable solution in the work we do. We rely on software tools like Tableau to engineer and distribute insightful, actionable analytics solutions. Our team of brilliant Data Architects and User Interface Designers uses a combination of creativity and advanced Tableau knowledge to generate outstanding healthcare data visualizations every day.
One of the most personal data elements we work with is geoanalytics data. Visualizing patient behavior against a map paints an entirely new and actionable story that can inform healthcare systems on things like: where case managers should focus their local efforts, where a mobile clinic should travel to obtain the greatest outreach, how patient drive times affect ambulatory care, and even things like weaving in US Census Bureau statistics in with EHR data to better understand broader demographic information about the community being served. Geoanalytics opens the door to more informed decision making that impacts patients at a personal level.
