Influencing action with data during avian flu outbreak
Previously, researchers used Microsoft Excel and Google spreadsheets to provide information on the outbreak and spread of infectious diseases to outside parties including hospitals, government, and the general public. The data sources were fragmented and there was no consistency in data analysis.
Today, GIDCC utilizes a single view of data for an agile BI environment and simplifies work processes regarding data collection and analysis. This enables outside researchers to actively participate and use visual data—even if they aren’t traditional analysts. With Tableau Public, GIDCC could expand the reach of information on infectious diseases, providing the ability to share findings with the public in an easy-to-consume format. This improved accessibility—both in data and exploration—will continue to improve reporting and the quality of infectious disease analyses.
Over time, researchers have brought a variety of data sources into Tableau for analysis, including the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Emergency Department Information System, data from public corporation, and epidemiological studies in order to create in-depth analyses by disease, health clinic, population, and so on.
For example, during the 2016 avian flu (AI) outbreak, GIDCC used Tableau as a communications tool to consolidate information from various institutions around Gyeonggi province, sharing mobile-optimized dashboards for field workers.
With Tableau, GIDCC can utilize existing public information systems to influence action. As a result, GIDCC is better able to manage and prevent infectious diseases.
