Hospital Bed Management Dashboard – Screenshots from bio-terrorism drill

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 5:32 pm

Thanks to the Dashboard Spy who sent me these screenshots of a bed management dashboard. The photos are from a terrorism drill conducted post 9/11. It's a long series of screenshots but the dashboard is interesting.

This first shot shows the staff reviewing the drill. Note the whiteboard on the wall serving as a real-life, physical dashboard:

Executive dashboard 

This next shot is one of the staff using the bed management dashboard:

Enterprise Dashboard 

Here is their management dashboard:

And here is the geographical view:

Homework: If you are interested in this frighteningly complex (and just plain frightening) subject, please browse these books on bioterrorism preparedness.

So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of business dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot of an enterprise dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ Also check out The Dashboard Spy's favorite books.
