VCH Data Visualization for Healthcare Quality Improvement
Written by rlemire
We are pleased to share the most recent results our project with Vancouver Coastal Health, Data Visualization for Healthcare Quality Improvement. Healthcare authorities deal with vast amounts of data. Much of this is used as part of their overall reporting structure. But new initiatives are looking at how specific datasets, ie. “small data”, might help hospital front line staff schieve the best possible results—essentially using data to affect clinical best practices. In all cases, the data needs to be captured and communicated to the healthcare personnel in a fast and easy-to-interpret way so they can act upon it and provide the best care possible. Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) asked the Health Design Lab to consider this visualization challenge. Check out some of the brilliant outcomes here.
