Envisioning information

Vipul and I were discussing patient records and I remembered a nice  
layout of a portion from a medical record that Edward Tufte  
visualized in his book Envisioning Information. It is on page 56 to  
57. Unfortunately I don't know of an online way to view the book, but  
if you have access to a copy this, and any ofTufte's other books,  
they are well worth a look. The visualization places a terse report  
of the treatment of a patient in her last days, from a medical bill,  
annotated on the sides, in a sort of talmudic style, with the story  
of what was happening at the time.
