Clinical guidelines provide recommendations in the form of applicable actions in a specific clinical context. Computer Interpretable Guidelines (CIG) aim to achieve guideline integration into clinical practice to increase health care quality. Analyzing the compliance with a CIG can facilitate the implementation and assist in the design of CIGs, but to help medical experts in the detection of patterns in the wealth of the data is a challenging task. We suggest an approach based on visual analytics, intertwining interactive visualization and automated data analysis i.e. analysis of compliance with a CIG. Our solution covers highlighting and abstraction for time-oriented patient parameters, and aggregation of repeatedly missing actions into intervals; in addition valid, invalid, and missing actions are represented visually. Furthermore, we discuss a case study showing how the applied techniques can assist in the detection of interesting patterns.
