Design Thinking for Health and Healthcare Data Visualizations
Approaching a data visualization project can feel like being trapped in a carnival house of mirrors—those maze-like puzzles that are designed to confuse people in unusual, humorous, sometimes frightening, even paralyzing ways that visually distort and cloak the unobstructed path through and out.
But creating data visualizations does not have to feel that way. Establishing a process grounded in user-centered requirements gathering and design thinking concepts and methods helps illuminate the path toward useful, understandable, visually pleasing data displays.
In this webinar Kathy Rowell, Co-Founder and Principal at HealthDataViz, will describe the design-thinking process for creative problem-solving that is human-centered, empathetic, collaborative, experimental, and optimistic.
She will also use relevant health and healthcare data visualization projects to demonstrate how the five-design thinking foundational concepts – empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test -- provide the structure teams need to create clear and compelling dashboards, reports and multidimensional exploratory displays (MEDS™) that people love to use.
