Here is an online demo of a psychiatric patient monitoring dashboard used at the Stanford Medical Center psych unit. I really like the no-nonsense design of this enterprise dashboard. It is quite appropriate for its use and environment. It looks clean with a clinical flavor and is yet slick because of its functionality. You have to try out the collapse/expand of the charts and the notes section. This well-done digital dashboard speaks for itself. I’m sure that it is a big success with the medical staff.
Homework: The best way to make sure that your dashboard is a success is to really pay attention to the design phase of the project. Well worth studying is this lavishly illustrated book, Information Dashboard Design: The Effective Visual Communication of Data.
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 enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) 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 digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, send an email to info _at_ dashboardspy.com. Also check out The Dashboard Spy’s books on enterprise dashboards. His current favorite is Enterprise Dashboards: Design and Best Practices for IT, the only book on actually implementing executive dashboards.
