Data Visualisation: customised graphics and combining outputs

It has become easier to produce customised graphics in SAS and to produce reports that combine outputs from several different procedures. This means that refined outputs can be produced that allow more targeted monitoring of individual patients and populations of patients.

Customised Graphics

There is now a range of graphical elements that allow graphs in SAS to easily convey a range of information for the user to see several concepts at one time all in one picture.

PHASTAR's approach to Risk-Based Monitoring
