Abstract: An electronic medical record (EMR) is “an electronic record of health-related information on an individual.” EMRs are widely used in healthcare organizations and have many advantages over traditional paper-based medical records, such as their efficiency and reduced storage needs. However, the use of EMRs has not yet reached its full potential. The numerous items of medical data are always shown with redundant and complex text contained in various monotonous forms and tables. It is hard for users to obtain useful information in a short timeframe. We propose a prototype system to intuitively and interactively visualize patients’ medical records. Navigation is improved through graphics-based and interaction-based visualization. Our interface features clickable two-dimensional (2D) images of a human body, on which the symptom locations are the starting point of the navigation. In addition, interactive and classified history visualization is also provided. Finally, some pertinent suggestions and comments from medical professionals are discussed.
