Abstract

Simulation modeling of population health is becoming increasingly popular for epidemiology research and public health policy-making. However, the acceptability of population health simulation models is inhibited by their complexity and the lack of established standards to describe these models. To address this issue, we propose Ophiuchus - an RDF (Resource Description Framework: http://www.w3.org/RDF/)-based visualization tool for generating interactive 2D diagrams of population health simulation models, which describe these models in an explicit and formal manner. We present the results of a preliminary system assessment and discuss current limitations of the system.
