    Abstract

    Efficient ways are needed to visualize the health status of a person and how the lifestyle, daily choices and health care actions are affecting it. Current systems lack a comprehensive interface for interaction and exploration of large and complex data and events affecting the data. Based on state-of-the-art data visualization techniques, we implemented and user tested a system that visualizes health data holistically over time. The system focuses on the dynamic changes by using a timeline of events affecting the overall health status. We conducted an extensive user testing process involving surveys, heuristics and observations in order to evaluate our system. The results show that our system has a high level of User Satisfaction while providing an adequate understanding, interaction and navigation of the data.
