ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - March 17, 2016) - SynGlyphX®, the leading provider of interactive data visualization and discovery technology, announced that Kristine A. Schulz, DRPH of Head and Neck Cancer & Communication Sciences, Duke University Medical Center and Mark Sloan, CEO of SynGlyphX® will present a joint seminar at the Data4Decisions (http://data4decisionsevent.com/conference/) conference in Raleigh, NC. The session, "Discovering Insight in Complex Data Using Interactive Data Visualization", will be held Wednesday, March 23, 11:15 AM-12:00 PM.
The session will illustrate how interactive data visualization leads to faster and more holistic medical research. Visual data discovery is an emerging method for understanding complex data. This seminar will demonstrate how an interactive data visualization approach, based on principles of neuroscience, allows users to quite literally see patterns, trends, and anomalies in the data. Schulz's team at Duke University, in collaboration with CHEER APPLIED and SynGlyphX®, deployed a combination of data analytics and visualization techniques to leverage clinical research for practice assessment and quality improvement.
According to Schulz, creating views of the tonsillectomy data in SynGlyphX® software enabled her team to: "1) replicate the findings from more traditional data analysis -- in less time; 2) discover previously undiscovered insights in analyzed data; and 3) more efficiently and effectively communicate findings to researchers at a national conference."
While analyzing a visual representation of tonsillectomy bleed rate data in SynGlyphX®, Schulz's Duke University/CHEER APPLIED research team discovered that those patients with Hispanic ethnicity had a bleed rate that was 312% higher than those of non-Hispanic ethnicity. Of note is that ethnicity had not been included in the original research and analytics plan -- as it was not thought to be a driver. Fortunately, visualization of this data coupled with other patient data led to the discovery. Schulz will share her approach and findings throughout the seminar.
interactive data visualization and discovery technology helps users make sense of the volumes of data generated every day. The proliferation of data, enabled by new sensors, increased storage capacity, and other technological developments, is actually inhibiting our ability to make timely, informed decisions. SynGlyphX® interactive data visualization and discovery software addresses this challenge by making it easier to see patterns, trends, and anomalies in complex data.
is excited to collaborate with Duke University Medical Center," said Mark E. Sloan, CEO, SynGlyphX®. "Kris and her team are making extraordinary strides in their research. We are happy that SynGlyphX®
has enabled the team to find additional areas for exploration. We look forward to working with them more closely as they use our interactive data visualization software to expand their research."
SynGlyphX®'s technology can be applied to data needs across a range of sectors including: Commercial (Marketing Analytics, Human Performance, Telecom and Utility Networks); Academia (Healthcare and Medical Research; Enrollment Management) and the Intelligence Community (Multi-INT Fusion; ABI; Patterns of Life). SynGlyphX® is transforming the way the world interacts with data for insight discovery.
