HDV is also expert at developing and delivering educational programs on the use and display of health and healthcare data.

Visualization Design and Development: Much of the work we do involves large government and clinical, financial, and operational health and healthcare data sets including the publicly available data on, billions of rows of clinical data from electronic health records and healthcare claims data, transactional data that must be extracted, transformed and loaded into data marts such as hospital operating room data and purchased data sets for conducting research and market analysis. Clients span federal, state and local governments, providers, payers and public health organizations. We use several visualization tools such as Tableau, Power BI, SAS Visual Analytics, and Qlik.

Prior work, which demonstrates HDV’s depth of expertise and value includes:

  • Redesigning, developing and deploying New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s public facing EpiQuery and Community Health Profiles data exploration and dissemination tools.
  • Working as a CMS subcontractor HDV provided technical support to state Medicaid agencies about data analytics and visualization by assisting in the development of analytics tool kits, development and delivery of learning webinars on data visualization best practices and dashboard development, and customized Tableau training programs and webinars.
  • Designing public health visualizations for Colorado Department of Health and Environment for their HIV- PreP program

  • 5107.0 - Improving Data Dissemination Through a Culturally Attuned Collaboration

    Katherine S. Rowell, MS, MHA

    Wednesday - October 27, 2021 - 1:15-1:30PM MT

    While public health organizations excel in their area of expertise and service provision, these organizations may have limited internal resources, which impact their ability to disseminate data. To help bridge this gap, HealthDataViz provides expertise in processes such as persona development, guided analytics and best practices of data visualization to create innovative data products. In 2020, HealthDataViz collaborated with the Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI). UIHI, as a Tribal Epidemiology Center, provides invaluable data on Urban Indian Health in the U.S for public health professionals and legislators. In 2018, the original dashboard was developed, a first of its kind in visualizing Urban Indian health through an interactive Community Health Profile tool. However, with the next iteration of the dashboard UIHI collaborated with HealthDataViz to optimize data visualization, usability, and ensure users were able to quickly access the data they need and see the story of Urban Indian Health in the data.

    The redesigned tool developed through this collaboration has improved navigation, flexibility, functionality, and aesthetics while maintaining cultural competency. It employs best practices in data visualization, ensuring users can easily understand the data and ultimately use it to make data-informed decisions. The underlying data structure and software application were consolidated and streamlined for a reduced maintenance burden on UIHI staff, which also gives stakeholders more timely access to new data. We will explain approaches that can be applied to any data product design process, demo the new tool, and share important considerations for improving data dissemination tools.
