Abstract: Hospitals collect large amounts of data during their daily operation. Next to its immediate primary purpose, this data also contains implicit information that can be used to improve clinical and administrative processes. We present a case study of how strategic infrastructure planning can be supported by the analysis of enriched patient flow through a hospital. Data from various hospital information systems was collected, enriched with topographical and organizational data, and integrated into a coherent data store. Common analysis tools and methods do not support exploration and sense-making well for such large and complex problems. We therefore developed a highly interactive visual analytics application that offers various views onto the data, and provides fast access to details in order to show them in context. The analysts were able to validate their experiences, confirm hypotheses and generate new insights. As a result, several sub-systems of clinics were identified that will pla y a central role on the future hospital campus. This approach was successful enough that we envision to extend it towards other process optimization tasks in hospitals. (More)
