Data Visualisation Style and Best Practice Guide
As we move towards a learning health system, data has the power to transform healthcare by delivering insights to improve clinical decision-making, service delivery, and patient healthcare outcomes.
We’ve developed a Data Visualisation Style and Best Practice Guide to help the healthcare sector turn data into engaging visualisations that tell a compelling data story, reveal key insights, and help the reader make data-driven decisions.
Why is data storytelling important?
Data storytelling doesn’t just show data. It builds a compelling narrative for the audience, answers specific data questions, reveals key insights, and creates conviction to call the reader to action.
Start using data storytelling to communicate your data to inspire action and change.
This guide to data visualisation best practices will help you to:
- Tell a data story
- Choose the right chart
- Use fonts designed for readability
- Apply colour to highlight what’s important
- Make charts accessible.
