What are some best practices for data analyst working in the medical field? I review this blog post from the Tableau blog by Barry P. Chaiken, MD about the type of analytics used in the medical field, and the trust that must be garnered between the analyst and the physicians. An interesting aspect of doing data analysis for medical professionals is that there is so much on the line (patients’ health) if the data is not clean or the analysis is incorrect. Even if the results of your analysis are not life or death, applying that same level of rigor from the medical field will yield positive results for your team or company.
