Healthcare is a fascinating application domain for visual analytics: a strong need for insights
to improve care and efficiency; large amounts of complex data; and critical decisions to be made.
In this talk I present work we did in this area in Eindhoven, like visualizing patient history
data, logs of medical scanners, and medicine prescriptions. Furthermore, a number of challenges are
discussed, like dealing with messy data and visualizing models. We have partial results here, but
development of generic solutions is a huge challenge.
