PADE: Supporting Collaborative Visual Analysis of Patient Administrative Systems Data with a Large Touch Display System

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

We present PADE, a visual analytics tool for collaboratively exploring data from patient administrative systems on large touch displays in meeting contexts. Large touch displays are becoming commercially available, but we have limited knowledge about how they might be used in such a context. We designed PADE based on inquiries with healthcare data analysts tasked with understanding expenses in a healthcare system that serve about six million residents. Our goals in designing the system were to enable the analysts to collaboratively construct hypotheses, quickly generate and execute strategies, and support ad hoc discussions and QA sessions during meetings. We created a set of interaction techniques that let users create new visualizations and combine parts of existing ones. We illustrate these possibilities through a collaborative analysis scenario. Finally, we discuss the possibilities and limitations of PADE, its interaction techniques, and future work in this direction.
