Visualizing Medical Data

Just saw this via Lucien Engelen but can't digest it fast enough. This is a whole new way to approach medical care—actually could make conversations with a doctor more practical and less of a black box. There's potential for helping users see what they're doing to their bodies and the effect their behavior is having on their health. Even though this seems like an application for the future, it looks like the developers have already made public demonstrations. They claim that this kind of visualization of personal medical data can actually lower the costs of health care.
