Hospital Enterprise Management Dashboard – managing health care facility KPIs with executive dashboards

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 1:37 pm

From Cincinatti comes a couple of executive dashboard screenshots used at a hospital there to track profitability metrics. It is a popular main front-end tool for the Chief Financial Officer’s staff to pull financial reports. The first dashboard screenshot shows, on the right side of the screen, a panel where you can toggle the various reports and KPIs that you can show on the dashboard. The second executive dashboard screenshot shows some of the sophisticated graphing that dashboard users can use. This particular shot shows a bubble graph visualization of the profitability of a patient stay with length of stay as a variable.

Homework: If you are a health care professional and need to study up on the financial side of your business, start with the book, Financial Analysis and Decision Making for Healthcare Organizations: A Guide for the Healthcare Professional.

Note: If you are on an enterprise dashboard project, do yourself a favor and take a look at Enterprise Dashboards: Design and Best Practices for IT, the only book on actually implementing enterprise dashboards.

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 nice screenshot of a digital 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 on business dashboards.


  1. Is this an in-house hospital dashboard, or who is the vendor building the Hospital Enterprise Management Dashboard?
