Visualize data

Step 1: View the different kinds of data available.

When you open the patient dashboard, in the visualizations section you'll see either two or three sections, as explained below:

  1. Activity: this section is where you'll find data for surveys you've taken and games you've played.
  2. Sensor: this section is where you'll find health data from your smartphone sensors, such as step count or blood pressure.
  3. Automations: this section is experimental and must be enabled. See Section 4 for more information.
⚠️

Cognitive tests and game data is hidden by default; to view these graphs, you must toggle the SHOW ALL button first.

Each item in these sections appears as a bubble with a name, as well as a small blue indicator at the top of the bubble representing the count of data points in that graph. To toggle a graph visible, tap on the bubble; to toggle a graph invisible again, tap the (x) button on the right side of the bubble.

Step 2: View a selected graph of data.

Once a graph is toggled visible in its default view, it appears with a toolbar at the top including the following information and actions:

  1. The name of the Activity appears in the center.
  2. Hovering over the name of the Activity shows what kind of Activity it was (i.e. a survey or game).
  3. The Switch Views button appears at the left side of the toolbar.
  4. The Help button appears at the right side of the toolbar.
  5. The timeline axis appears at the bottom of the graph, and the score axis appears at the right side of the graph.

Hover over a data point to see its exact date and time, along with its score and other parameters saved. You can also select and drag a region of the graph on non-mobile devices to share and annotate.

Tapping the Switch Views button allows you to toggle between Overview and Expanded modes. In the Expanded mode, you'll be able to see each individual question as its own sparkline graph over time, along with the actual value of that data point.

Tapping on any blue dot will enter Detail mode, where you will see all the parameters saved for that data point alone. In this view, the toolbar will contain the following:

  1. The date and time of recording this data appears in the center.
  2. Hovering over the date and time shows the name of the Activity.
  3. The Back button appears at the left side of the toolbar.
  4. The Editing panel appears at the right side of the toolbar with Delete, Duplicate, and Overwrite buttons.

To return to your previous view, tap the back button.

Step 3: Delete, duplicate, overwrite survey responses.

If you're logged in as a clinician or researcher, the three actions available in the Editing panel are:

  1. Delete: hide this data point from the graph.
  2. Duplicate: copy this data point's information to "carry it forward" when saving a new data point from the graph.
  3. Overwrite: replace this data point by adding a new data point and hiding the original data point from the graph.
⚠️

Please note that the Delete and Overwrite options only hide the original data point from graphing; the data itself IS NOT deleted from the LAMP Platform. Contact your server administrator to restore data that may have been incorrectly hidden or temporarily deleted.

Step 4: Show environmental context, step count and other passive data.

If your clinic or study has enabled some sensor types, you'll find them here in this section. As before, tap on an item's bubble to view the graphs for that type of data. You'll see two examples below, Environmental Context, and Step Count.

⚠️

Environmental context refers to the pop-up shown by the mobile app after the completion of a survey. If you're not using the mobile app, you may not see any data for this sensor type.

Step 4: Show dynamic visualizations from Automation applets.

🔥

This is an experimental feature. If you'd like to enable these visualizations, contact us.

If your server administrator has enabled the Automations framework, and your research study or clinic has installed applets, you will be able to see their visualization output here. For more information on the Automations framework or creating your own visualizations in programming languages such as Python, R, or Javascript, see

[NOTE] Administrators, Developers, and Data Scientists: In this document document, the term "data point" is being used to jointly refer to the "ActivityEvent" and "SensorEvent", depending on the context of its usage, as documented in the LAMP Protocol.
