Enhanced Opioid Prescription Data Visualization

8:15 AM–8:35 AM May 21, 2020 (Conference Time: US - Pacific)

8:15 AM–8:35 AM May 21, 2020


Abstract: Clinicians generally are exposed to medical data formatted as an iteration of the data’s appearance in a paper-based chart. Together with the abundance of healthcare data, interpreting data can be overwhelming and result in critical information being missed. We developed and studied a novel data visualization tool which may allow providers to interpret prescription data for opioid medications more accurately. Further research is needed to optimize the utility and effectiveness of this interactive visualization tool.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: Attendees will understand the importance of medical data visualization and they will be able to leverage innovative design to display opioid data from the prescription monitoring program (PMP) in a graphical interface that allows providers to quickly and better view, grasp, interact with, and understand information in the PMP about the prescriptions (medications and doses), providers, and pharmacies for a given patient.
