Digital Dashboards

A fair number of Dashboard Spy readers are interested in enterprise dashboard techniques for tracking hospital and other health care facility metrics. I’m always glad to accomodate business dashboard and scorecard requests and have a couple of hospital performance scorecards to show you today. These digital dashboards are from the Hospital Report Research Collaborative based at the University of Toronto. These scorecards serve to rank the hospital’s departments both internally and against peer facilities. These digital dashboards use technology from

  1. Hello Dashboard Spy. I enjoy your blog about enterprise dashboards. It is good to see such information. I have been studying this topic for many months now and am glad to see so many examples. I will visit your site often.

    I was very interested in seeing your post about “KPI Requirements for Dashboard Projects – Using the KPI Wheel”. Thank you for the information about this dashboard topic. There is a dashboard project at work about this subject.

    The wheel graphic is very nice. I like the colors and the questions are very interesting – What Question? Who’s Asking, Why is it Important, etc. I think it is very good. I also like the layout of the screen. I have a question about the boxes on the right side. Is the user supposed to type the answers to the questions into the boxes?

  3. Depending on the type of simulation, you may be able to do it in a spreadsheet! I suggest to contact a local university with an Industrial Engineering program, if there’s one in your area. They should be able to help you.
