The goal of this project is to create a working alternative to the FDA Drug Safety Evaluator's current medical error analysis workflow. By prioritizing a visualization-focused application, investigators are able to easily identify trends and important reports. Using treemap visualizations, bar charts, and area charts, an investigator is able to sift through medical error reports by patient demographic, report statistics, and date, allowing specific reports to be found easily. Specific reports have all of their metadata displayed in a tabular view and can be interacted with to show the report's narrative. The application allows for the evaluators to mark and store significant reports in cases that provide further statistical analysis on the annotated reports stored inside them.
