Abstract

Disclosed is a method to use a double lollipop graph to display multiple readings over a single amount of time across a given range of dates. It allows for the plotting of multiple values on a single date, while still showing a visual representation of the link between the data, as well as the novel organization of the relationship between data on the same date.

Double Lollipop Graph with Multiple Data Points on a Single Line

An improved method is needed to display blood pressure readings. Each blood pressure reading has a systolic and diastolic value. These are taken on the same date, and therefore are connected. However, the process also needs to address situations in

which a patient receives multiple blood pressure readings on the same day.

In order to graph all of the values, the solution is to enhance the traditional double lollipop graph design and add more data points to each line. This disclosure proposes a method for displaying data that has at least three related data points, which share an

x-axis or share a y-axis value.

This novel display method shows multiple readings over a single amount of time across a given range of dates. It allows for the plotting of multiple values on a single date,

while still showing a visual representation of the link between the data, as well as the novel organization of the relationship between data on the same date. This display enables a viewer to see trends or patterns of unusual activity as clusters, which

provides insight into periods of increased health encounters, possibly assisting in patient diagnosis or the prediction of illness.

The preferred situation for applying this display method occurs when multiple related data points share an axis value, such as a single date. These data points should be related to each other, but should not need to be connected to data from o...
