Interactive Interface
THIS HAS TO CHANGE!!!!
Having great epidemiology data is only half the deliverable. It is important for users to be able to easily access the data and sort it by whichever variables are most important.

Epiphany, in collaboration with our IT partner, Advanced Technical Support, has built an easy-to-use, intuitive interface that is continually undergoing reviews and enhancements.

The following are several screenshots demonstrating key usability issues with Epiphany’s interface and many of the advanced functions.

Interface Overview

The following is a simple graphic illustrating the layout of the interface and key functional areas. Each data table is presented with data from 2005 to 2040. The model data is available through 2050, if needed.

Assumptions and Definitions

Epiphany strongly believes in transparency of our models and assumptions. As such, the ‘epic oncology™ interface has several direct links to detailed assumption data (mainly graphs with interactive function and available data) as well as detailed definitions for each cancer (to determine the exact ICD-O-3 coding definition) and for each analysis. The interface was designed to make it easy for users to find the information and sourcing that they might need.

Treatment Landscapes in Cancer (TLCs)

To provide background information on each study cancer in the U.S., Europe (EU5: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, U.K.), and Japan, Epiphany has developed Treatment Landscapes in Cancer slide decks. Each slide deck (PDF in the interface and PPTX upon request) provides disease background, general epidemiology data (incidence, staging, subsets, survival), and detailed treatment data. The following are a few examples from the Japanese lung cancer TLC for 2012:

Advanced Filtering

Epiphany generates its detailed data by subset, stage, gender, and age-group. Given the depth of the data, the interface was designed to allow users to dynamically filter the data so that only the specific information required is shown. The following graph shows how the filter looks: users can select any combination of stage, subset, gender, and age-group, as available.

Interactive Functionality

To make the interface more than just a data repository, Epiphany has enhanced the interactivity between users and the ‘epic’ team. At the bottom of each analysis table, there is a messaging system which allows users to post questions which are sent directly to Epiphany’s team. Users will receive e-mail notifications when an answer or comment has been posted; users can also post additional questions or comments to extend and deepen the discussion. All “discussions” are client-specific.

Announcements and Updates

The interface also has an “announcement” function to provide uses with important updates and highlights. A semiannual newsletter is also published to provide information on upcoming enhancement, updates, and changes to the data set.

Additional functionality that is in final testing includes detailed “cross tabulations” or “custom queries” whereby the user can compare the following:

  1. Several different analyses in a single cancer and a single country
  2. One analysis across multiple cancers in a single country
  3. One analysis across a single cancer in multiple countries

Future enhancements currently in planning, design, or testing include:

  • Ability to select multiple countries and/or multiple cancers
  • Detailed algorithms
  • Advanced data graphing functions
