Background: Diabetes is a long-term disease characterized by high blood sugar and has risen as a public health problem globally. Exploring and analyzing diabetes data is a timely concern because it may prompt a variety of serious illnesses, including stroke, kidney failure, heart attacks, etc. Several existing pieces of research have revealed that diabetes data, such as systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), weight, height, age, etc., can provide insightful information about patients diabetes states. However, very few studies have focused on visualizing diabetes mellitus (DM) insights to support healthcare administrator (HA)’s goals adequately, such as (i) decision-making, (ii) identifying and grouping associated factors, and (iii) analyzing large data effectively remains unexplored.
Objective: This study aims to design an interactive Visualization system (Vis) to explore diabetes mellitus (DM) insights and its associated factors in Bangladesh.
Methods: In this study, first, a case study method has employed to understand diabetes data. Second, we examine the potential of user-centered technology in addressing these challenges and design a Vis named “DiaVis” to process and present raw data in the form of graphics, graphs, and processed text, as well as a variety of user interaction possibilities. It helps to extract valuable data and present it in a simple and easy-to-understand way. Moreover, we highlight some key insights from our study that may help explore the healthcare community.
Results: A user study with 20 individuals is used to evaluate our system. By allowing iterative exploration and modification of data in a dashboard with multiple-coordinated views, the DiaVis system improves the flow of visual analysis.
Conclusion: This study suggests that the healthcare community should pay more attention to developing appropriate policy measures to reduce the risk of DM.
