Do you want to participate in the ISDS Conference? Work with a new and unique dataset? Show off your visualization skills?
Submit a visualization for the 2012 Data Visualization Event!
Apply your visualization skills to a rich, de-identified set of ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) data from Practice Fusion, a free, web-based EHR vendor. These are not your typical syndromic surveillance data; there are no free text data, the most specific time frame is year, and the most specific geographic location is state. What these data do include, however, are allergies, conditions, diagnoses, immunizations, lab orders and results, medications, patient demographics, smoking status and vital signs. In partnership with Kaggle, Practice Fusion released these 10,000 de-identified, HIPAA-compliant medical records to spur innovation into new uses of clinical data to improve public health and patient care.
Since this is a unique dataset, and due to the growing importance of chronic disease surveillance, we are challenging participants to use the data to develop visualizations for chronic disease surveillance.
Details can be found here.
Submissions will be presented during the ISDS Conference enabling conference attendees to gain knowledge of visualization tools and techniques.
To sign up, please complete the registration form by September 27, 2012.
