Workshop on Visual Analytics in Healthcare: Understanding the Physician Perspective
(In conjunction with VisWeek 2011, Oct 23-28)


** Paper Submissions Due August 31st, 2011 **

Call for Papers
This workshop will provide a unique and valuable opportunity in which participants will be able to meet, talk, and showcase their visualization techniques to leading physicians and receive feedback about how their tools can be adapted for use in clinical practice. In addition, physicians will provide detailed information about areas in healthcare where additional visualization techniques are needed.

Visualization and visual analytics show great potential as methods to analyze, filter, and illustrate many of the diverse data used in clinical practice. Today, (a) physicians and clinical practitioners are faced with the challenging task of analyzing large amount of unstructured, multi-modal, and longitudinal data to effectively diagnose and monitor the progression of a particular disease; (b) patients are confronted with the difficult task of understanding the correlations between many clinical values relevant to their health; and (c) healthcare organizations are faced with the problem of improving the overall operational efficiency and performance of the institution while maintaining the quality of patient care and safety.

Visualization and visual analytics can potentially provide great benefits to each of these three core areas of healthcare. However, to be successful, the resulting visualization must be able to meet the physician's requirements and be useful for both patients and physicians.

Topics and Scope

Topics of interests include but are not limited to:
* Visual analysis and exploration of longitudinal clinical test
* Visual data mining of EHR
