New Book on Healthcare Data Analytics

healthcare_data_analytics_coverI’ve co-authored a chapter titled Visual Analytics in Healthcare in a new book that is now available for pre-order from CRC Press.  The book, Healthcare Data Analytics, is edited by Chandan Reddy and Charu Aggarwal.  It explores a variety of data analytics topics in the context of the healthcare domain, broadly defined.  Topics in the book range from EHRs, to NLP, to image and signal analysis, to genomics. The chapter that I wrote, along with Jesus Caban and Annie Chen, focuses specifically on applications of visual analytics methods.  We characterize the different application areas within healthcare where visual analytics can be usd, and provide a brief survey of relevant work in each of those areas.
