Project Description:
Designed by the team at MIT SENSEable City Lab, Health InfoScape is a disease network that combines 7.2 million patient records from General Electric's proprietary database in an effort to illustrate relationships between various conditions that commonly affect Americans today. It essentially tries to answer questions like: When you have heartburn, do you also feel nauseous? Or if you're experiencing insomnia, do you tend to put on a few pounds, or more? By investigating how different ailments are related, one may gain various insights about condition associations.
