New JAMIA Article: Evaluating Visual Analytics Technologies in Healthcare Context

I’m excited to report that the long-running Task Force on Evaluation, organized by AMIA’s VIS Working Group, has published its findings in a JAMIA article released earlier this year.  The task force, co-chaired by myself and Danny Wu, was one of the very first initiatives launched by the VIS Working Group and provides a valuable resource to health informatics researchers and developers who are looking to evaluate the use of visualization or visual analytics technologies within the healthcare domain.  A preliminary report from this group was published at VAHC 2016, and after a large team effort the final product was completed in 2018 before its 2019 publication.  Congratulations to the entire team for an outstanding collaborative effort!
