THE CARE AND COGNITION MONITOR

Visual analytic tools, combined with social networks and mobile platforms, make it possible to create multi-dimensional, holistic pictures of people’s health care and condition and expand the scope of information addressed in medical records. The Care and Condition Monitor (CCM) is a tablet-based, networked visual analytics tool for collecting, structuring and analyzing informal and qualitative healthcare data and visualizing it in a circular format. It illustrates how social communication within teams of caregivers enables capturing of longitudinal informal data that can (a) result in rich and meaningful information visualizations, (b) improve comprehension of healthcare data and changes in condition over time, and (c) support medical decision making.
