Chris Madden / Providing smarter care with electronic health records

View Portfolio

Chris Madden created illustrations on the future of electronic health records for a web article in the University College of San Francisco’s online newsletter.

According to the article, electronic health records can used to mine patient data. In addition to locating the source of hospital infections, records can remotely monitor diabetics and possibly identify the best treatment for a given cancer.

Madden chose to represent the trend toward electronic records by showing a doctor pulling fruit, as data, from a tree that has a massive underground root system.
