As a data manager, you are often tasked with developing graphs for various projects, committees, and focus groups. The Revenue Taskforce would like you to develop a set of graphs to analyze the number of patient visits, length of stay, and payment methods. You will compile a presentation of findings for the next meeting.
- Using the sample patient file create at least three graphs.
- Create a 6-8 slide PowerPoint presentation to include:
- Title slide

- Explanation of why each graph was the most effective method for the data set – using graphical perspective and data visualization as a foundation to the explanation
- A brief analysis of each graph – identify trends or summarize results
- Reference Slide
Submit your presentation.
