Data analysis plays an important role in healthcare as it enables service providers to discover hidden knowledge in the data, allowing them make more informed decisions about patients’ health. The continuing increase in the amount of data and lack of skilled people, however, has made data analysis very challenging. This project aims at developing web-based analytics and visualization tools to help researchers uncover new knowledge within the data much faster through automated analysis. Our initial efforts will focus on two disease registries for cancer and stoke patients, which Pulse InfoFrame Inc. has developed and currently manages. The long-term goal of this project is to enable Pulse InfoFrame Inc. develop and commercialize innovative health informatics tools, which will be of great interest to various markets. Our hope is that, once the tools are developed and are proven successful, they can be used to analyze data in other disease areas.
