Currently, visualization support for patient data analysis is mostly limited to the representation of directly measured data. Contextual information on performed treatment steps is an important source for finding reasons and explanations for certain phenomena in the measured patient data. But this kind of information is mostly spared out in the analysis process.
We describe the development of CareVis - interactive visualization methods to integrate and combine classical data visualization with the visualization of treatment information in terms of logic and temporal aspects. We provide multiple simultaneous views to cover different aspects of a complex underlying data structure of treatment plans and patient data. The tightly coupled views use visualization methods well-known to domain experts and are designed to facilitate users´ tasks. The views are based on the concepts of clinical algorithm maps and LifeLines which have been extended in order to cope with the powerful and expressive plan representation language Asbru.
The user-centered development approach applied for these interactive visualization methods has been guided by user input gathered via a user study, design reviews, and prototype evaluations.
