Abstract: Healthcare activities take place in a multi-disciplinary environment and on a cross-organizational scale. Parties involved are: patients, doctors, hospitals, therapists, laboratories, insurance companies, the government and the research community. Knowledge transfer, more precisely, the transfer of technological innovations to health applications is highly regulated and typically focused on a clinical „from bench-to-bedside“ approach. Due to new socio-technical developments, personal eHealth applications supporting well-being, fitness, and health activities are considered as an area with a high adoption rate for innovations. Visual eHealth as a research strategy addresses the improvement of healthcare with interactive visualization and visual analytics in digital tools. Automated image processing and interactive visualization are required for transforming the promises of personal and clinical eHealth into reality. In public health, visual analytics of big data can contribute to improved guidance in medical care. We highlight three visual eHealth services and outline open issues concerning the shift from clinic-focused to patient-centered innovation.
