HealthVis – Information Visualisation Practices for Improving Patient Readability of Health Data and Health Literacy


The purpose of this project is to develop best practices for the visualization of health data in order to increase patient readability and understanding of said data. This will encompass the exploration of different designs and strategies for visualization of health data collected by medical device, or other that may be relevant (i.e. blood sampling).



Increase AICOS’ knowledge on the usability and readiblity of user interfaces for health data, and the best practices for information visualization techniques would inform the design of new systems, as well as improve existing ones.
