ffective Data is a research project conducted to identify gaps in medical communication, offering a speculative alternative to collect, archive and communicate medical stories. The process inquired the empathetic value of design and how it allows to bring back a sense of humanity into systemic datasets. The research was directed towards standards of accessibility within the documentation procedure and the exchanges between patients and clinicians.
I aimed to bridge current and new forms of communication by making data more accessible and tangible for patients. By unpacking individual experiences and identifying communication challenges, the work intended to uncover personal stories and reveal possible applications of visual communication in the health area.
I used data visualisation as a method for communicating these lines of inquiries to the general public as well as to an audience of clinicians, attempting to initiate a dialogue around these topics.
