Abstract: 

Presented at the 2013 Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. This lively session explored the "why's, what's and how's" of visualizing data. Participants looked at different approaches that some states have used to display data in innovative and visually interesting ways as a means to better understand and communicate data. An accompanying resource handout shared no-cost, low-cost, and higher-end resources for data visualization. Interest in establishing a community of practice around data visualization was also explored.
