We demonstrate COVIZ, an interactive system to visually form and explore patient cohorts. COVIZ seamlessly integrates visual cohort formation and exploration, making it a single destination for hypothesis generation. COVIZ is easy to use by medical experts and offers many features: (1) It provides the ability to isolate patient demographics (e.g., their age group and location), health markers (e.g., their body mass index), and treatments (e.g., Ventilation for respiratory problems), and hence

COVIZ relies on QDS, a novel data structure that encodes and indexes various data distributions to enable their efficient retrieval. Additionally, COVIZ visualizes air quality data in the regions where patients live to help with data interpretations. We demonstrate two key scenarios, ecological scenario and case cross-over scenario. A video demonstration of COVIZ is accessible via
