In today's world, infographics and other data visualization methods can make anything go viral. But how do you know the information presented is accurate and statistically significant? Furthermore, how do you not fall prey to flashy headlines and misconstrued numbers?

During my senior year of college, I was a part of Knight-Thon's (University of Central Florida's (UCF) The Dance Marathon raising funds for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals) Morale Team, where I and about thirty people boosted the spirits of participants and acted as brand ambassadors. I met Kristen Kingston, MSHI, CPHIMS. Kingston was a part of The Morale Team with me. In the five years since Morale, Kingston graduated with her Master of Science Degree from the University of Central Florida in Healthcare Informatics and helps people and companies shift through clickbait and important health-related data. I spoke with her to learn more about her new venture, Visual Health Insights (VHI).

1. What makes VHI different from other consulting firms?

Visual Health Insights (VHI) stands out because of our specialized focus on health-related data visualization and our commitment to creating intuitive, user-friendly dashboards and visual tools. We combine a robust Health Informatics background with innovative technology to deliver tailored solutions that meet and exceed client expectations. Our customization will allow for unique and adaptable visual representations, and our data storytelling approach will focus on narrative-driven visualizations that not only represent data but also tell a compelling story, making the insights more impactful and straightforward to communicate.



2. How can people learn to be better at understanding data?

To improve health data literacy, people should focus on developing a solid foundation in data basics, including understanding different data types and standard visualization techniques. Engaging in continuous learning through online courses, workshops, and hands-on practice with real datasets can also be beneficial. The primary purpose of data visualization is to help people understand data (especially those who are visual learners like myself!), so at VHI, I want to make precisely that happen - so that clients and their stakeholders can more easily interpret and utilize health data effectively in their decision-making processes.

As VHI grows, we want to remain dedicated to our core values of improving healthcare and population health outcomes through data insights.
