About the Author:

Dan Benevento is a data visualization consultant and trainer with a passion for using healthcare data to save the world. A black belt in the use and application of Tableau, Dan has collaborated with IT teams at leading companies and organizations nationwide to build data bases and create hundreds of time-­saving, high-­impact reports and dashboards. His interactive dashboards and reports custom designed for leaders in all healthcare sectors have streamlined medical procedures, lowered costs, and made patients safer. The Tableau curriculum Dan designed and built shortens the learning curve for new practitioners, and ensures that current users stay up to date on data visualization best practices. Dan holds an A.B. in Social Studies from Harvard University. His passionate devotion to world-saving through healthcare data also extends to climbing cliffs, surfing waves, strumming guitars, and savoring fancy cheeses. (Though an expert multi-­tasker, he does not usually do all of these simultaneously.) Katherine Rowell is co-founder and principal of HealthDataViz, a Boston firm that specializes in helping healthcare organizations organize, design, and present visual displays of data to inform their decisions and stimulate effective action. She advises providers, payers, policymakers and regulatory agencies how to align systems, de- sign reports, and develop staff to communicate healthcare data clearly. Kathy holds a BS in Business Management and a Master’s in Health Administration from the University of New Hampshire, and an MS from Dartmouth Medical School. A former member of the faculty of Brandeis University’s Medical Informatics Graduate Program, Kathy continues to serve on its Advisory Committee. She is a recipient of the prestigious Partners in Excellence Award for leadership and innovation.
