Software-based data visualization tools are all amazingly powerful in terms of bringing some of our most complex healthcare data to life, but it can be invigorating to take a step back and really evaluate the best way to paint the data story you hope to convey.  In continuation of our blog post on personalizing data visualization, we are going to share some data visualizations activities you can try too.

These drawings were based on the exercises published in Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec’s guided journal, Observe, Collect, Draw, which complements the Dear Data project and encourages personalized data visualizations.

Using the guided prompts, we drew:

 

Members of the Prominence Team Hand Drawing Data Visualizations about Themselves

Through drawing together and sharing our data visualizations, we learned about each other and were able to see patterns and trends that would otherwise have been missed.

Selfies with our Data Selfies

As we reviewed each drawing together, it raised new questions and sparked fun conversations among the team about our experiences and different backgrounds. It really brought the team together in a more meaningful way than the usual corporate ice breaker does.

As you think about what personalized data means to you, what overlooked data exists in your world that you’d like to capture, analyze, and share? Tell us about it; we’d love to help you derive value from new data sources.
