Abstract:

The medical community produces massive amounts of patient and research data. There are significant challenges that hinder the effective use and interpretation of this data. UIUC’s National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) is contributing its expertise in high-performance computation, cyberinfrastructure, software development, analytics, and visualization to address obstacles and improve patient care. Information design plays an important role, enabling the assessment of evidence and the study of data to help generate hypotheses and draw conclusions.
