What We Talk About When We Talk About Visualization

Terms such as “visualization,” “visual intelligence,” “infographics,” “information graphics,” and “dashboards” get tossed around with such frequency and with different meanings that it is hard to know exactly what we are talking about when we talk about visualizing our health and healthcare data.

In this interactive seminar we will discuss how and why the leading researchers and recognized experts define these terms in a manner that will empower you to select the best graphs and visualizations to display your data. You will learn the science behind how we see and understand information and simple yet powerful ways to display and communicate information so that the opportunities are clear and people are moved to action.

We will explore and discuss the five qualities of a great visualization – is it:

  1. TRUTHFUL
  2. FUNCTIONAL
  3. BEAUTIFUL
  4. INSIGHTFUL
  5. ENLIGHTENING
We have expanded our portfolio to include compelling new examples from our work with public health groups and clinical research teams, along with ongoing work displaying provider and payer performance and financial data. And, although you may never create the reports and dashboards disseminated by your institution, you must understand the power and importance of how we see and understand data in order to lead a truly data driven organization.
