IDMVis is an open source interactive visualization tool for showing type 1 diabetes patient data. It is designed to help clinicians perform temporal inference tasks: specifically for recommending adjustments to patient insulin protocol, diet, and behavior. IDMVis is built with JavaScript and the d3.js library.
