Consumer Data Visualizer (Garnet Cross/Gold Shield HI App): 94%
Great idea, and good explanation of what they are proposing.
Good presentation. Nobody smile though and that made it boring.
Very professional presenting from all team members. Well done.
Seems like a well thought out idea. I enjoyed the product demo. It was very clean and seemed very intuitive.
Good project, definitely seems practical and useful.
Very well organized! The time and effort you put into this project reflects in a strong way!
Good job guys! It did seem like a couple of the members in the group didn't contribute to the project, but the ones who DID contribute did a great job, because the demo for your deliverable was excellent. You were the only group that had a REAL live
iPad app! Kudos! Great job!
very through. simple but practical
Good presentation, but there seemed to be come confusion as to who was presenting what topic.
Loved the equation: novice = knowledge = informed patient
Leon County Health Dept. (Bond) could really benefit from something like this because you have to fill out the same form for every visit, and sometimes the data is still entered incorrectly or not at all.
Demo was off the charts!!!!!
I like the idea of having new tailored specifically for the patient based on their condition.
The logo and name could be copyright infringement, I would look into that.
This idea is great! I've always wanted a resource to educate me on-the-spot, as the doctor is presenting me with their diagnosis. All group members spoke in a clear and engaging manner, which made what they said that much more appealing.
Their powerpoint was one of the most organized. Nice iPad app!
Seems like a PHR which has been done but very professional presentation
Said "um" like 300 times during the presentation... distracting!
interesting concept, didn't really have any comments or criticisms to make
seems to be a valuable tool
The product itself is rather boring, however the app was very nicely done and was shiny. Why does the social security number need to be displayed?? I think the project itself was well done, but the concept itself was unappealing. I can't imagine myself ever actually using something like this, even if my only option is sports illustrated. Didn't mean to sound so negative!
Great idea. I think this will be extremely beneficial to doctors.
The presentations was good. But I feel you could have organised the presentation a bit better. I like the idea of the project but if you are developing a application then you should have written the application using a app developing software.
Garnet Cross - Gold Shield
The project topic we are researching is data visualization and utilizing in-office tablets. We are going to research the kind of data visualization available in health care and how data visualization can be utilized to provide readable and understandable medical records and test results. Too many times, patients either can’t understand their results, diagnosis, other medical information, or they never ask to see their information on file with their doctor.research will show this is a way to bring more awareness to patients about their health, prevention, and/or treatment is to utilize iPads or Tablet PCs in doctor’s offices. When a patient comes in, they are given a tablet, with their information, latest lab results and diagnosis. While they are waiting, they can see information specific to their health condition. Along with the latest news, medications, and therapies.

Main Deliverable & It’s Impact:
The deliverable for the project will be a Web Application – Health Information App. The application is a web app, so it will be able to be used on various devices – iPad and other tablets – of the physician’s choosing. The application will have a secure log in – the receptionist will load the patient’s information on the device, so the patient can only see their information and no one else’s, thus keeping patient privacy.
The app will display patient information, (name, social, address, phone, history, insurance information) that the patient can update from the app. It will also have a section dedicated to test results, which utilizes the data visualization. Once that part of the app is selected, the patient’s latest lab results, if any, will appear in an easy-to-read style. The patients’ levels will appear in a bar graph, line graph, or pie chart, depending on the situation. The patient’s levels will be compared to the average and the risk levels. With the patient’s levels displayed in an easy to read manner, the patient will be able to quickly read their information and then ask any questions to the physician. Another section of the home screen of the app will be a news section tailored to the patient’s condition. If the patient has diabetes -- the news article will feature diabetes news, new treatments, etc.
Competitors & Our Advantage
GE provides a service called
which provides an overall view of visualizing healthcare data. They obtain their data through data mining from a vast amount of sources. Their goal is to help not only patients but also healthcare providers see the bigger picture in regards to the prevalent topics within the healthcare industry today. They have an iPad application named “Stats of the Union” which is powered by the Community Health Status Indicators report. It consists of data from various federal agencies (such as the Department of Health & Human Services) to allow the consumer to make their own conclusions about America’s health.
Practice Fusion provides a free, web-based electronic health records (EHR) for anyone to use. They utilize the data given to provide charts from your lab reports. They include an activity feed that displays a list of recent actions such as visits, lab results and medications prescribed.
Capzule PHR is an iPad application that provides a complete offline solution to maintaining your personal health record. You can store medical bills, appointments, immunization records, medications and more all in one app. Using the data that you input, the app will help analyze and compare data and events for any given period of time. You can also easily email data and graphs to your physician.
Our advantage is that we provide a service that no one else currently provides. We will allow physicians to manage what is input into medical records for correctness while also providing that information in an easily readable and attractive layout that will help users better understand their health records. We believe this will not only help the patient, but it will also help the healthcare providers by providing their patients with information which will help them make better decisions. A more informed user is a smarter user.

Resources – Available and Missing
We are researching data visualization and how it can be utilized in-office tablets. Our deliverable for the project will be a Web Application that will display patient information, (name, social, address, phone, history, insurance information) which the patient can update from the app. Garnet Cross Gold Shield has many resources available with seven outstanding team members that will help make this possible: Curtis Bridges, Detra Sheard-White, Katie Smith, Matt Russi, Kendall Williams, Garrett Fontenot, and Kathryn Rigsby. Each team member is a valuable resource to this project.
Detra and Katie have much experience in the realm of design and will construct the design and layout of the deliverable. Kendall, Matt, and Garrett are very knowledgeable in different programming languages and will help with the markup and programming of the web app deliverable. A database will also need to be put in place to store the patient’s information and be able to access different articles that coincide with the patient and his or her ailment. Curtis will prove to a valuable resource for setting up the database as he is familiar with understanding database and SQL. Kathryn is familiar with some of the programming languages and a little bit of SQL, so she will be assisting in these two areas. Kathryn will also be assisting in researching ways to utilize data visualization through tablets in healthcare facilities.
Garnet Cross Gold Shield will research data visualization and how to efficiently utilize it in-office tablets. We want to use this data visualization to provide readable and understandable medical records and test results with patients. It would be invaluable if the patients could review their medical records and or information while waiting to be seen. What team Garnet Cross and Gold Shield really needs is to come up with a valid argument to Doctor’s offices and hospitals why this would be a necessity to implement; why it would be worth it to Doctor’s offices, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities to make this a priority.
It is important for us as a team to work together and make this service as efficient and invaluable as it can be.
Who Will Benefit and How?
Using the tablet in healthcare coupled with, data visualization will better service doctor to patient visits. For one thing, patients will be able to visualize treatment for their diagnoses. Another thing, tutorials on treatment plan for the patient can be viewed while waiting for doctor in future visits and doctor videos can be viewed by family of patient to be updated during major surgery to ease and sooth family thoughts of patient in surgery. Next, depending on patients illness, he/she will be able to connect with a support group via the tablet and see what other patients in hospital are suffering from the same thing (with consent). Also, tablets are designed for mobility, so instead of the patients waiting on results for tests alone in room they can have doctor answer any other unanswered questions while they wait for results to be pinged to tablet.
Up to 10% of nurses time per day is spend commuting to and from workstation. By results of information for patients being stored on servers and doctors being able to access this information through their tablets, nurses can have more interaction with their patients. The coordination of RN's, registrars and Personal Care Aides (PCA's) and patients relatives are an increasingly significant task. These issues are further exacerbated by evolving medical technologies, competing fiscal demands and a shortage of technologically advanced nursing staff. To address these issues, hospitals need organizational tools to manage the growing complexity of organizing and managing. The use of data visualization and tablets withal give overworked hospital staff the ability to view these tools mobile while tending to the care of patients and their colleagues. One way this can happen is if specialized doctors can view a patients condition via tablet and patient can visually see recovery time and history of treatment that they have received and what treatments are to come in the future.
Imagine a teaching hospital, a doctor can engage the patient while writing or typing on tablet, no different than they would with a notepad or chart in front of them. A team rounding at a university could have multiple tablets at work: the intern presenting the case off their device while attending and resident verify labs and imaging reports on their own, all while staying in the circular huddle and answering any questions the patient may have as well. Imagine the workflow productivity for nursing staff with the ability to interact with a range of medical applications and on-call assignments -- real time.
Enabling staff to address issues such as; staff patient ratios, bed management, compliance, Q&A, reporting, workflow productivity while staff is mobile. Whether the caregiver is at the patient bedside, in the care zone or off the care zone. Mobile computing, data visualization with the implementation of the tablet will provide efficiency to healthcare work practices and efficiency for the years to come.
