Current figures from the American Diabetes Association show that 8% of the U.S. population, or 25.8 million people, have diabetes. This is a large percentage of the populace that needs to manage a chronic health issue.
Data visualization is a powerful tool for explaining complex systems. So why is it absent in doctor-patient conversations on chronic health management? This talk will center around the speaker’s own personal experience using off-the-shelf activity trackers combined with continuous blood sugar monitoring to better understand his blood sugar management regimen. Join the speaker as he discusses his three-day trek on the Appalachian Trail and the surprising insights he gained into his own condition when he used data visualization to analyze his journey.
This session will also expand on the insights gained by exploring how data visualization, combined with continuous tracking, could be used in patient education for chronic health management.
