As healthcare continues to evolve, understanding data has become increasingly critical to being able to make timely, informed decisions. At City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center, we replaced traditional data silos and manual processes with a data culture mindset and modern approach to managing our data and facilitating research.
Our visualization-first approach has enabled us to better manage, understand, and utilize our data for research and discovery to improve health. Specifically, our team of population cancer scientists have been collecting and analyzing real-world data to discover what differs between the healthy and the ill. The work we do with data visualization can easily translate to activities that occur in disease and patient registries, in exploration of social determinants of health, and in population health.
Join us to explore how your organization can also make this data-first transition and learn how we rely on data visualization for four key data tasks:
- As our Quality Control guide. New data are inspected before integration, viewed alongside related information, and introduced visually, to facilitate understanding
- As the tools we use for data exploration
- To simplify the complex and reduce potentially overwhelming clinical and longitudinal data into easier-to-digest components
- To uncover those unknowns that stimulate creativity and launch new inquiries
