Rajwan YG, Barclay PW, Lee T, Sun IF, Passaretti C, Lehmann H - Online J Public Health Inform (2013)

Bottom Line: We describe the challenges in publicly reporting of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) data and the interpretation of an evaluation metric.Survey-data collection and evaluation criteria results, collected from the two focus groups, are presented and are used to develop the final recommendations for how to visualize publicly-reported CLABSI data from Maryland acute care hospitals.Finally, a recommended format for visualizing CLABSI outcome data based on the evaluation study is summarized.

ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to evaluate information visualization of publicly-reported central line-associated blood stream infection (CLABSI) outcome data for decision making by diverse target audiences - health care consumers and practitioners. We describe the challenges in publicly reporting of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) data and the interpretation of an evaluation metric. Several options for visualization of CLABSI data were designed and evaluated employing exploratory working group, two confirmatory focus groups' observations, and experts' committee validation of the final designs. Survey-data collection and evaluation criteria results, collected from the two focus groups, are presented and are used to develop the final recommendations for how to visualize publicly-reported CLABSI data from Maryland acute care hospitals. Both health care consumer and practitioner's perspectives are highlighted and categorized based on the visualizations' dimensions framework. Finally, a recommended format for visualizing CLABSI outcome data based on the evaluation study is summarized.

f2: Visualization of Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR)

Mentions: We captured participants’ comments during all the phases on the variousinformation visualization alternatives. To provide the focus groups with simulateddata formats, we presented mocked-up representations of how the data would bevisualized. We used the custom-built structured interview tool on four dimensions,see Figure 1. At the end of each focus-groupdiscussion the consumer and professional audiences were provided a paper-basedcustom survey that asked them to rate each display format in terms of four criteria,depicted in Table 2, to consider whenvisualizing complex medical information [20].
