Authoring clinical guidelines as well as observing the execution and the maintenance of these is a time-consuming and cumbersome task. Usually, clinical guidelines are represented in conceptual models, which are very hard to understand by domain experts. Furthermore, to analyze the effectiveness and usefulness of clinical guidelines they need to be shown in connection with the patients' data. In this overview book chapter we present different methods to visualize clinical guidelines, patients' data, and the connection thereof. Finally, we illustrate how the different visualization methods support the various tasks in plan management.
