Researchers with the U.S. Army claim that clinical data visualization is a key component in the usage and delivery of EHRs because it:
- Presents data in a pleasing, easy-to-understand manner
- Makes digesting and sharing data faster and simpler
- Reduces the time needed to interpret and understand data points
- Increases the user’s ability to see trends and patterns in patient data
Data analytics and visualization tools also allow for the smooth communication between practitioners and patients. With the assistance of communicative charts and interactive dashboards, users can absorb information more efficiently and use it more effectively.
The design and format of the information presented are crucial factors that should be taken into consideration when producing visual aids to explain the significance of the data collected.
Ultimately, analytics solutions allow healthcare practitioners to harness a better understanding of patients’ health, the available treatments, and the expected procedure outcomes. They also reduce the time spent on managing data and instead increases time spent putting the data to work for organizations and their patients.
The financial benefits of analytics solutions cannot be underestimated.
We recently published a guide that explores how data and technology can enable organizations to make informed healthcare decisions, produce better patient outcomes, and create a better patient and stakeholder experience. You can download it below.
