While Data Analysis plays a crucial role in making important decisions and providing value-based services to the patients, it is of little use without Data Visualization. Data Visualization makes Data Analysis more effective by bringing essential takeaways of the healthcare industry into the limelight. Data Visualization highlights only the data that’s important in a simple form such as a graph, chart, or even a storyboard. Massive data and the complex nature of operations involved in the healthcare industry make Data Visualization even more critical.
Data visualization in healthcare helps with many things including
- A dashboard of the patient’s history
- Improve response time by pointing out major areas of concern (like allocation of ambulances)
- Identifying trends and patterns in medical history
- Monitor several administrative parameters like length of stay, mortality rates, wait times, etc.
It also ensures real-time metrics and up-to-date information on what’s important.
