"There's a great fear that comes with a diagnosis of cancer and research shows that over 50% of patients, family or friends seek out information online to better understand what to expect. But there are no black and white answers with cancer," said Kathi Evans, President, Cancer Roadmaps. "We needed a tool that would allow us to convey the many possible paths that cancer can take. Tableau's interactive dashboards are an elegant solution to allow our customers to learn about symptoms, treatments, side effects and outcomes through the experiences of patients already on the journey."

Continued Evans, "As a long- time veteran of the healthcare informatics industry, I'm used to massive data infrastructures, IT-intensive development projects and time to market based in years. Using the Tableau suite of products we were able to develop a product within six months using more analyst resources than IT resources. It has been a long time since I have been this enthusiastic about a product. It changes the economics of providing quality information directly to patients and consumers."

Cancer Roadmaps utilizes Tableau Desktop (http://www.tableausoftware.com/products/desktop) to analyze cancer experience data from U.S. oncology practices, the National Cancer Institute and patients themselves to create cancer-specific profiles. These profiles are personalized into interactive dashboards and deployed via Tableau Server (http://www.tableausoftware.com/products/server) to the Cancer Roadmaps website allowing customers to explore information in a private, convenient, online setting whenever they need to.

"Providing visualizations and dashboards on as complex an issue as cancer to patients is an innovative idea - one that requires an application that anyone can use and understand. Cancer Roadmaps needed a solution that was not only fast and easy for its staff to deploy but one that would also be fast and easy for consumers on the web," said Christian Chabot http://www.tableausoftware.com/about/leadership#cc), Tableau's CEO and co-founder.
