ConVIScope : Visual Analytics for Exploring Patient Conversations Li, Raymond; Hoque, Enamul; Carenini, Giuseppe; Lester, Richard T.; Chau, Raymond


The proliferation of text messaging for mobile health is generating a large amount of patient-doctor conversations that can be extremely valuable to health care professionals. We present ConVIScope, a visual text analytic system that tightly integrates interactive visualization with natural language processing in analyzing patient-doctor conversations. ConVIScope was developed in collaboration with healthcare professionals following a user-centered iterative design. Case studies with six domain experts suggest the potential utility of ConVIScope and reveal lessons for further developments.
